Mangos originated in northeast India but later spread to other parts of Asia, Africa and South America. Selective breeding and careful domestication has altered the original mango, which was probably small, fibrous and difficult to eat, into the large, sweet fruit that is now commercially available. The wide distribution of the mango has led to the development of many various cooking methods and uses. Tropical cuisines feature baked mango as a dessert. An entire ripe mango contains only 107 calories.
