Abstract
The Mango, Mangifera indica L., is of the Anacardiacea: family to which the cashew nut belongs. A characteristic of the family is the presence of a caustic sap, and this is obvious in the mango in the immature fruit. The Mangifera genus is indigenous to Eastern Asia, and some notes on the origin of Mangifera indica are given by Green way (1944).
