Mangifera

Mangifera is a genus of flowering plants in the cashew family, Anacardiaceae. It contains approximately 69 species, with the best-known being the Common Mango (Mangifera indica). The center of diversity is in subtropical and tropical southeast Asia, while the highest number of species occur in the Malay Peninsula, Borneo, and Sumatra. They are generally canopy trees in lowland rainforests, reaching a height of 30–40 m (98–131 ft).[2]

Uses[edit]

Mangifera species are widely cultivated in Asia and elsewhere. More than 27 species in the genus bear edible, fleshy fruits, especially the Common Mango (M. indica). Others, such as M. foetida, yield astringent fruits that can be eaten pickled.[3]

Species[edit]

Of these 10 are accepted species names.
