The fruit is round and oval , the colour green /yellow /orange/purple when ripe. The kernel fat has a fat content of 10 to 15%.

Manufacturing Process
As Mango fruit after ripening, falls and dries on the forest bed, the nuts are quickly collected by the farmers. Since they have a high moisture level (42/48%) it is essential to dry the kernels to avoid fungal attacks and deterioration of the oil. Mango butter is then manufactured in a conventional oil extraction plant.
