What is mango?

Mangoes (Mangifera indica) are fruits with a tropical core the size of a grapefruit. The color of the skin is yellow, green or red-green, the flesh is soft and yellow, and the fruit has a hard, inedible hole in the middle.

Mangoes are native to Southeast Asia, but are now grown in other countries, including the United States, Mexico, and the Caribbean.
