Mango is one of the best fruits for going on a tropical taste bud adventure. Sweet and juicy, mango brings an irresistible flavour experience alongside a plethora of health benefits. Sadly, mangos do possess one disadvantage: they can be a hassle to prepare. Peeling and cutting the fruit is a step too far for some. This, however, isnt an issue with Monin Mango Syrup.
With this syrup, you can instantly add a blast of mango goodness to cocktails, frozen drinks, desserts, and more.
When pinpointing the beginning of the mango story, we have to journey back over 6,000 years ago. For an illustration of the time period, the invention of the wheel had only just beaten the discovery of mangos. The cultivation of the fruit began in the Indo-Burma region, with this extensive area of Asia which starts from eastern Bangladesh, covers Chinas western Yunnan Province, most of Thailand, and ends in Vietnam providing idyllic tropical weather conditions for the mango to thrive. Mangos are particularly revered in India. Along with the Philippines and Pakistan, the mango has the distinction of being Indias national fruit.
Mangos remained enclosed in the Indo-Burma region and away from the rest of the world for about 4,000 years. At this stage, travellers would venture further afield, mangos in tow, and introduce the fruit to other countries. Yet it wasnt until 1498, when a mango trade was established by Portuguese travellers who landed in Calcutta, for the fruit to begin fully reaching the Western Hemisphere. The reason behind this is, most likely, due to the short window of viability available for planting mango seeds. Transport across a country let alone to a different continent was understandably a slow and difficult process at the time.
It took until the 19th century for mango cultivators to arrive in the US, turning up in Florida and California in the 1830s and 1880s respectively. The spread of production continued across the world, and there are now over 1,000 different mango varieties available. Although in a situation befitting of its history and standing, it is India that ranks as the biggest mango producer. Based on 2017 stats, they were responsible for almost 40% of the worlds mangos.
