Mango is one of the world's popular fruit for its taste, juice, flavour, fragrance, etc. Its leaves are used as floral decorations for many ritual and religious celebrations in India. It is consumed in plain or in many ways, juices, icecreams, pickles, sauces, etc. Thinking of it itself, is mouth watering... ;)
