The most frequently consumed fruit in the world is the mango. Despite still being considered an exotic fruit in the United States, more mangoes are consumed annually than any other fruit in the world.

According to Detox Lounge, people around the world eat three times more mangoes than apples and 10 times more mangoes than bananas every year. The mango fruit is typically green and red on the outside and golden on the inside, and it is sweet and soft when ripe. Mangoes grow best in tropical climates, and though they grow in some states, they are not native to North America.
