    Mango is often referred to as the king of the fruits.

    Mango is one of our favourite fruits at the clinic. And the best thing is that it is Mango season ☀️ in Australia!

    The mango ?(Mangifera indica) is by volume the second largest tropical fruit crop in the world after bananas? It is ranked fourth in total fruit consumed after bananas, citrus? and apples ?.

    The mango is native to north-eastern India ?? and Burma but is now widespread in its distribution. Cultivation of mango has occurred for more than 4000 years and the tree has great cultural and religious significance in some countries. It is the national fruit of India and the national tree of Bangladesh.

    Due to the geography of Western Australia, it is possible to produce fruit from September through to April. Kununurra produces the earliest fruit, followed by Broome, Carnarvon, Geraldton and Gingin.

    We love a refreshing mango ? lassi during summer! Many of you may be wondering, is mango lassi an Ayurvedic recipe? The answer is no. Ayurveda speaks about improper food combinations and milk/yoghurt mixed with fruits is one of these. Although on a hot summers midday, when the agni (digestive fire) is strong, a mango lassi can be consumed on limited occasions.
