Q:

Where do mangoes grow?

A:

The majority of the world's mangoes are grown in Malaysia, Burma and India. This stone seed fruit is native to southeast Asia, and it is one of the most popular fruits grown and sold in the tropics.

The mango tree is also grown in California where it can reach heights of more than 30 feet tall. It requires a warm tropical climate with temperatures that do not drop below 40 degrees Fahrenheit, even if it is just for a short time. However, some very young trees can survive after being exposed to temperatures of around 30 degrees Fahrenheit, while very old trees can survive temperatures of around 25 degrees Fahrenheit when exposed for a short time.
