Mangifera indica

About: Mangifera Indica is the scientific name for the common mango tree. Growing up in South Florida and now living in Puerto Rico, I am lucky enough to have had a tree either in my own or my neighbor’s yard. Whoever owns the mango tree, it’s common courtesy to share the bountiful fruit with your neighbors. A mango tree can live up to 100 years and produces up to 300 fruits per season on a mature tree.


The tree in this painting is in a growth cycle; the young leaves developing and expanding from older branches. The new leaves (depending on the variety) emerge a glossy deep purple and as they mature, change in color to ochre, sienna and finally a rich green. The green leathery leaves sometimes reach over two feet in length.
