The Sweeter side of Quickwit

It's nearly mango season! Mango is widely known as the "king of fruit," and that is not without a purpose. It is regarded as a valuable item of diet and a household remedy. It is rich in amino acids, vitamin C and E, flavonoids, beta carotene, niacin, calcium, iron, magnesium and potassium.
About 4000 BC, the wild mango originated in the foothills of the Himalayas of India and Burma, and about 40 to 60 per cent of these trees still grow in India and Southeast Asia. Also known as Mangifera Indica, this exotic fruit belongs to the family of Anacardiaceae. Though native to Southern and Southeast Asia, the fruit is now also grown in Central and South America, Africa and also the Arabian Peninsula. Today there are over 1,000 different varieties of mangos throughout the world.

                World news can be so draining!  Time to lighten it up with a sweet story, one that is good for you!
Just wanted to see if you were paying attention................
