When you think of Fruit, you do not usually think of a long or rich history. Not so when you are talking about the Mango. The tropical fruit has great religious and mythological significance. Ancient Vedic texts call the fruit the “food of the Gods” and its leaves are often used in various religious ceremonies for decoration. It symbolizes the joy of life. The Mango is believed to have first appeared in Asia before being brought to other areas by settlers.
The Mango is not just a symbol or food. It can also keep one healthy. The fruit is rich in antioxidants, vitamins and minerals. It also has some enzymes in it that are believed to help keep the digestive system healthy and functioning properly. Some should be careful, though, not to come into contact with the peel or sap, as it can cause dermatitis.
The significance and popularity of the Mango eventually led to an Indian festival starting in 1987. The two-day festival soon became so popular other versions began showing up in Jamaica and the Philippines before joining the ranks of Florida festivals over a decade ago. This is a large Miami event
featuring many locally grown species of the tropical fruit, making it one of the more unique Florida festivals. It is also a great way to spend a day and satisfy some hunger pains. There will also be various workshops and entertainment to check out, so there is plenty to do here for all ages.
