It has been said that mango is the king of fruits. Dont you all think that apple is more appropiate for the saying!!!

Why would you say apple is the king of fruits? Because of the saying "An apple a day keeps the doctor away"? And I never knew the mango as the king of fruits. In fact, I have always thought that DURIAN is the king of fruits, while MANGOSTEEN is the queen of fruits. See http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Durian and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mangosteen .

maybe in tropical countries MANGO is really the king FRUIT but in other countries that don't have the sweetest type of mango won't consider it that way & the season for what they have can't survive growing mango trees . in the Phillipines MANGO is consider King fruit 'coz anywhere you go you can see mango or even not in the season month of it still there are some who can harvest the fruit!

Personally I love the taste of mango more. Its very tropical and it looks more down to earth. Its gives more benefit too like the apple but of course, I would go for the better tasting food. I believe it has been king because of the appeal its got based on appearance and taste. But there is a fruit that I like more than mango and that is banana. If I would have to vote for fruit kingship, Ill choose banana. Its also very good for the skin.
