A herald of summer. Ripening mangoes on a tree, India
Mango cultivation is an essential part of agriculture in India. The country is one of the largest producers of mangoes in the world, with many varieties grown in different regions. Mangoes require a warm, humid climate, and the best time for planting is during the monsoon season. Mango trees can bear fruit for over 30 years, and with proper care and maintenance, they can provide a significant source of income for farmers. Mangoes are also a highly anticipated summer treat. The bright yellow fruit, with its sweet and juicy flesh, is a favourite among kids and adults alike.
