Sri Lanka

Answer: Bangladesh

The mango is the national tree of Bangladesh. The mango is native to South Asia, from where it gets distributed worldwide. It is one of the most cultivated fruits in the tropics.

Before November 2010 there was no national tree of Bangladesh. Therefore, the then-government decided to declare Mango as the national tree of Bangladesh.

It is reported that there are approximately 210 varieties of mango available in the world. The mango tree can grow up to 15–30 meters tall.

In a mango tree, the flower usually appears at the end of winter and beginning of spring. Both the male and female flowers are borne on the same tree.

Climate condition controls flowering of the mango tree.

In Bangladesh, the main mango growing regions are around Rajshahi, Chapainawabganj, Nawabganj, and Dinajpur. Usually, Chapainawabganj was very famous for growing mangoes but now huge mangoes are also produced in the Rajshahi district. 

Over 270 varieties of sweet edible mangoes are found in the Rajshahi district.

Some popular varieties of mangoes are Fazlee, Langda, Gopalbogh, Himsagar, Khirsapat, Ashhwina, Khisanbogh, Kuapahadi, Lata Bombai, Foria, Bombai, Kohitoor, Laksmanbhog, Mohanbhog, Misribhog, etc.

Each mango has a different distinctive flavor.

Among the different varieties, Fazli, Lengra, Gopalbhog, and Khisrapat are considered as the premium mangoes.

December to February is the time when the mango trees blossom.
