Mangifera

 

a genus of evergreen trees of the family Anacardiaceae. There are about 40 species, found in the tropics of East and Southeast Asia. The mango (Mangifera indica) is one of the most important fruit plants of the tropics. The tree is 10-45 m tall and has a dense crown. The leaves are linear-oblong or elliptic and have a resiny odor. The small flowers are gathered into panicles. The fruits are drupes of various sizes and have tender, fragrant, tart or sweet flesh. The drupes are used as food in fresh or preserved form (as are the fruits of many other species of Mangifera).
