Mangos

MANGOS has been a dream for store owners: Jaime and Susy Perez; since moving from Guadalajara, Mexico into the United States in 1985, they had a vision that some day they would have their own fruit and ice cream shop. They thought of a place where people could cool down from those hot summer afternoons in San Antonio with a traditional raspa, a delicious mangonada or just a plain ice cream bar. A place where people could have a healthy option for their every day lunch menu with a refreshing fruit cup or a savoring corn in a cup, or where families together could enjoy one of those all American favorites like nachos, hot dogs and milk shakes. Today, this dream has come true and we believe in giving you the best. Because of this, we pride ourselves on having fresh, local ingredients every day. We like to think of our food as every day comfort food. You know, the kind your mom would have made (if she were to spoil you every day).

Details

Mangoes are juicy stone fruit (drupes) produced from numerous species of tropical trees belonging to the flowering plant genus Mangifera, cultivated mostly for its edible fruit. Most of these species are found in nature as wild mangoes. The genus belongs to the cashew family Anacardiaceae. Mangoes are native to South Asia, from where the "common mango" or "Indian mango", Mangifera indica, has been distributed worldwide to become one of the most widely cultivated fruits in the tropics. Other Mangifera species (e.g. horse mango, Mangifera foetida) are grown on a more localized basis. Worldwide, there are several hundred cultivars of mango. Depending on the cultivar, mango fruit varies in size, shape, sweetness, skin color, and flesh color which may be pale yellow, gold, or orange. Mango is the national fruit of India and Pakistan, and the national tree of Bangladesh. It is the unofficial national fruit of the Philippines. Wikipedia
