Mango (Mangifera indica) has its origins in India from where it has been introduced to other warm regions of the world. It was domesticated in the Indian subcontinent about 4,000 years ago, and for this reason, all varieties of Mangifera indica are generally called Indian mangoes, whether they are grown in Brazil or China.
There are several other species of mangos, but Indian mangoes account for about 90% of world production exports and consumption. The most popular mango cultivars are Tommy Atkins and Alphonso.
While ripe mangoes are a very popular delicious fruits, unripe mangoes are used as vegetables and also for preparation of pickles and mango powder (Aamchur), which is used along with spices and also for food flavoring.
I love photos, art, sculptures, images, and whatever name can be attributed to such art forms. When I first started using the internet, it was good photos and images that attracted me the most. I have a website that I started in 2006. I wanted to use photos in them, but, as I am not a photographer, I was disappointed by the copyright laws and other restrictions. Then I searched ways to find FREE photos that can be used by anyone, anywhere, and luckily I found out some sources and I created a blogger blog with them. Now this will be my next photo-blog with public domain photos and images that can be used by anyone. I hope I will be successful here!
