In honor of our new Mango Wood Platter, we’ve gather four fun facts about this sustainable, remarkable but little-known wood.

 

1. Mango Wood’s color can range from blonde to dark brown and can even have a hint of pink.

 

2. Mango trees can grow over 100 feet tall  and do so relatively quickly, usually within 15 years.

 

3. There are more than 1000 known varieties of mangos.

 

4. When a mango tree reaches its full size it stops or slows production of fruit. Historically full-grown mango trees were cut down and discarded, but due to the popularity of mango wood products, these trees now have a new purpose.
