The mango is one of the oldest cultivated fruit crops, having been grown in India for at least 4000 years. Mango is the most important fruit crop of Asia and its annual production is exceeded worldwide only by musa, citrus, grapes and apples. During the last decade there has been a doubling of mango production as markets have been developed in Europe and North America, There is now substantial mango production in Central and South America, as well as an expanding industry in regions such as northern Australia, South Africa, Israel and southern USA.
