Mangoes are excellent for cooking due to their unique flavor, fragrance, and versatility. 

Mangoes have a sweet, tropical flavor with a slight tanginess. This combination of flavors adds complexity to both sweet and savory dishes, making them an exciting ingredient for cooking. Mangoes pair well with a variety of ingredients, such as chili, lime, coconut, cilantro, and ginger. Their flavor profile complements both spicy and savory elements, making them versatile ingredients for different cuisines.

Countries known for mango production in Africa are Nigeria, Egypt, Kenya, South Africa, Tanzania, Uganda, Ghana, Côte d'Ivoire, Senegal, Mali, Burkina Faso, Benin, Togo, Cameroon, Mozambique, and Zambia. 

Nigeria is one of the largest mango producers in Africa, particularly in the country's northern regions. The country's diverse agroecological zones provide suitable conditions for mango cultivation. 

Egypt has a long history of mango cultivation and is known for producing high-quality mangoes. The Nile Delta region, with its fertile soil and favorable climate, is a significant mango-growing area.

In Kenya, mangoes are grown in different parts of the country, including the coastal region, Rift Valley, and Eastern Kenya. The country's tropical and subtropical climates support mango production.

Mangoes are grown over a wide area in South Africa, and the most popular mangoes to plant are Tommy Atkins, Zill, Kensington, Irwin, Neldica, Kent, Heidi, Sensation, and Keitt.

The Tommy Atkins mango is known for its large size, vibrant red or green skin with yellow undertones, and sweet flavor. It is a versatile mango that can be used in various culinary applications, including fresh consumption, juicing, and cooking. The Tommy Atkins mango is appreciated for its relatively long shelf life, which makes it suitable for export and distribution.
