How to Draw a Mango Tree - Step-by-Step Tutorial
Step 1: First, draw the roots. Draw a few wavy lines in a small row.
Step 2: Draw the trunk next. Draw a long line on both sides of your roots that dip in toward the middle and come back out.
Step 3: Then, draw the branches of the tree. Extend the lines that come out a line from your trunk and then draw a curved “V” on the inside of those lines.
Step 4: Now, it’s time to draw the leaves. In the shape of a circle where the bottom is the top of the trunk, draw small little humps. Add a bundle of small humps on the inside of your tree to add detail.
Step 5: Finish by drawing the fruit. To draw a mango, draw an oval that dips in a little toward the bottom of one side. Add a small line going up from the top of the mango to look like it is hanging off of the tree. Repeat this all over the tree.
Interesting Facts about Mango Trees
Mango Trees grow naturally in Southeast Asia and Eastern India. They are a tropical plant that can grow to 115 to 130 feet tall. When a Mango Tree first produces its leaves they are purple, and then turn a dark green. The fruit is round and can be red or yellow in color. The fruit appears after the tree flowers which are a small bunch that will bloom together. Mango Trees produce mango fruit which is like a pear in shape, but has its own unique taste. Some compare it to a peach. Mangos will ripen on a tree 4 to 5 months after the flower bunches bloom.
