Mango

Mango wood is derived from the mango tree. This is the same tree that produces the sweet fleshy fruit known as ‘a mango‘, characterised by skin that turns from green to yellow/red and an inside comprised of a large stone surrounded by juicy yellow flesh. Its ‘Latin’ name is mangifera indica.

The tree belongs to the Anacardiaceae family, which also includes:

  • Pistachio
  • Cashew
  • Poison ivy

The mango tree is evergreen and grows to an average height of between 15 and 18 metres (50ft and 60ft).

Mango wood is categorized as hardwood because of its strength, density, attractive looks and of course durability that allows it not to wear out quickly and keep their high luster texture for many years. … Mango’s hardwood consists of very dense grain that is durable, strong and not too hard on tools during woodworking.

 

The dimensions listed in the ‘additional information’ tab includes packing for shipment.
