Mango trees are evergreen trees (genus Mangifera) which can reach heights of over 90 feet tall! The Indian Mango (Mangifera indica) or “common mango” is the only tree normally cultivated in tropical regions with its fruit being distributed almost worldwide.
Its fruit and leaves are used as decorations in many parts of the world.
India is the world’s largest producer of Mangos, where it’s known as the “King of Fruits” with over 1000 varieties grown and harvested. And while Florida is the top state producer of Mangos in the U.S., Hawaii and California are also producers of this wonderful fruit. In Hawai’i, Mangos (where they’re known as a “backyard tree) are grown on Oahu, Maui, and Kauai.
Some Mango trees bear fruit after 300 years!
Some Mango trees root systems can spread to over 20 feet deep!
But our decision to add Mango as one of our Hawaiian Soy Candles was very easy: they smell and taste WONDERFUL. Our kids and family love to purchase and eat mangos. And our candles display a very hardy and robust flavor when lit or unlit that will add a special Hawaiian flavor to your room!
