Mangoes are native to Southeast Asia and were first found in the northern states of India, where the fruit is known as mango. It was gradually introduced in different parts of the country and had different names according to different geographies. When it was introduced in South India, they called it am-ke or mam in Tamil and soon, the Malays called it manga.
