Review by Debbie Mazo

 

FreshMangoes.com  
Everyone's first taste of a mango is a memorable one, whether eaten alone or as part of a salsa or tropical drink. However you first encounter mangos, there's no doubt that this exotic fruit has reached star proportions as a key ingredient in many dishes. For everything you to need to know and more about this aromatic fruit, visit FreshMangoes.com sponsored by London Fruits.

Originating in Southeast Asia, mangos have been growing for over 4,000 years. Many Southeast Asian kings and nobles had their own mango groves with private cultivators being sources of great pride and social standing. Known as the "king of fruit", the mango is as rich in tradition as it is in taste. Discover some of the legends and lore when you check out a Brief History of Mangos, including its sacred role in India as a symbol of love with power to grant your deepest desire.

FreshMangos.com With over 1,000 varieties of mangos available throughout the world, there's plenty of excuses to sample this rich-tasting fruit. Click on Health Benefits of Mangos to discover even more reasons to get hooked. High in fiber and low in calories, mangos are an excellent source of vitamins A and C. They also provide essential nutrients like potassium and beta-carotene.

Picking out the perfect mango can be a tricky business. Never fear! FreshMangos.com has all the tips you need to know when visiting your local produce market. According to the site, you can determine the ripeness of a mango by either smelling or squeezing it. A ripe mango has a full, fruity aroma coming from the stem end. You'll know a mango is ready to eat when it's slightly soft to the touch and yields to gentle pressure, like a ripe peach.

With the world's largest online Mango Recipe Guide, you'll discover great serving ideas at FreshMangos.com from some of the top chefs of the world. Recipes are sorted by categories including appetizers, drinks, and soups. You can also search by ingredient or recipe name.

To add zip to your next seafood meal, try the Grilled Fish and Mango Citrus Salsa spooned over tuna, swordfish, or mahi mahi. For a unique and quick dessert, whip up the Fast Mango Crepes sprinkled with brown sugar. Or wake up to a Mango-Banana Yogurt Smoothie sweetened with honey and apple juice.

Once you get a taste of mangos, there's no turning back. FreshMangos.com will always keep you up-to-date with its free monthly newsletter featuring what's new in the mango world, current contests and prizes, recipes, and a lot more.
