Can Mangoes Get Sunburned? | #CoquiEats
Snapple “Real Fact” #1416 says “Mangoes can get sunburned.” As crazy as it sounds, I wanted to find out whether it was true or not. Since I come from a tropical climate, I can admit the heat can get pretty unbearable. So I did a little research and found out some interesting information about the truth behind the myth...
After long hours of research, I couldn’t find any information about the myth but, I did manage to discover some valuable information on fruit trees in general. Many young fruit trees are susceptible to sunburn damage in the field. Sunburn on young trees can seriously affect growth and in some cases be fatal. Sunburn damage also destroys tissues which enable water and nutrients to move from the roots to the tree's canopy.
Don’t worry even if your mango does get a little sunburned, you can happily drink your mango smoothie while reading these fun facts!
