The word mango comes from the Portuguese manga, which is probably derived from the Malayalam (manna; pronounced "manga"). The word's first recorded attestation in a European language was a text by Ludovico di Varthema in Italian in 1510, as Manga; the first recorded occurrences in languages such as French and post-classical Latin appear to be translations from this Italian text. The origin of the -o ending in English is unclear. Mango trees (Mangifera indica L.) reach 35-40 m in height, with a crown radius of 10 m. The tree is long-lived with some specimens known to be over 300 years old and still fruiting. In deep soil the taproot descends to a depth of 20 feet, and the profuse, wide-spreading feeder roots also send down many anchor roots which penetrate for several feet. The leaves are evergreen, alternate, simple, 15-35cm long and 6-16cm broad; when the leaves are young they are orange-pink, rapidly changing to a dark glossy red, then dark green as they mature. The flowers are produced in terminal panicles 10-40cm long; each flower is small and white with five petals 5-10mm long, with a mild sweet odor suggestive of lily of the valley. The fruit takes from three-six months to ripen. The ripe fruit is variable in sise and colour, and may be yellow, orange, red or green when ripe, depending on the grower.When ripe, the unpeeled fruit gives off a distinctive resinous sweet smell. In its center is a single flat oblong seed that can be fibrous or hairy on the surface, depending on the grower. Inside the seed coat 1-2mm thick is a thin lining covering a single embryo, 4-7cm long, 3-4cm wide, and 1cm thick.
