Various Types of Mango in Indonesia

Are you a fan of mango fruit?, The name “mango” is more commonly known throughout Indonesia. While in West Java it is called “fruit” only. An odd term, because the term “fruit”, is more commonly known to refer to all types of fruit that exist throughout the world. In West Java it is only intended for “mango”. It’s strange… but let us here not discuss the terms fruit and mango. But the kinds. Mango fruit has the scientific name Mangifera indica, except for Kuini and Kasturi which have different species names.
Mango belongs to the Mangifera clan, which consists of 35-40 members, and the Anacardiaceae tribe. Its scientific name is Mangifera indica.
The mango tree is a high-level plant whose trunk structure (habitus) belongs to the arboreus group, which is a woody plant that has a stem height of more than 5 m. Mango can reach 10-40 m high.
The name of this fruit comes from Malayalam maanga. This word is equivalent in Indonesian to mangga; and on the other hand, this word was brought to Europe by the Portuguese and absorbed into manga (Portuguese), mango (English) and others. The scientific name itself roughly means: “(tree) that bears mangoes, originating from India”.
Originating from around India’s border with Burma, mangoes have spread to Southeast Asia since at least 1500 years ago. This fruit is also known in various regional languages, such as Pelem or Pauh (Malay).
In Indonesia there are many types of mangoes, sometimes the name for the same type of mango is different from one region to another.
Some experts say that this genus has around 35-40 species, but others estimate that there are nearly 70 species. Borneo has the highest number of species, around 31 species, so it is thought to be one of the centers of species diversity.
