Taiwan's favorite fruit, the mango, has a complicated history. The earliest Taiwanese mangoes are the Tumangguo (native mangoes) introduced by the Dutch. During the Japanese Governor Generalship, new cultivars were introduced from India and the Southeast Asia. In 1961, Mr. Chen-chou Chang of Taiwan Agricultural Research Institute planted the first 100 Irwin mango saplings at Han-chi Cheng's Orchard, all of which successfully bore fruit in 1964. Those who want to know more must visit the Mango Industry and Cultural Museum to acquire more of these interesting stories!
