Is mango a monocot or a dicot?

Mango    Nigeria

Is mango a dicotyledonous plant? I am confused if it is a monocotyledonous plant or a dicotyledonous plant

You can tell because the arrangement of major leaf veins is parallel

Charlie Anderson commented,
A mango is indeed a dicot, but the leaf veins are reticulated (in general, leaf veins running parallel to the long axis of the leaf = monocot, reticulated (branching) leaf veins = dicot)
