Mango Season!

There are mango trees all over town with fruit on them. Some of these trees are huge!

If they are in a well traveled area the fruit is usually picked up. If you can find one in a less traveled area or know someone with a tree you might get lucky. We even got a bag full from the plant shop because his tree was dropping mangoes everywhere. Or, you can also get them at the produce markets.

They are sweet, delicious, and taste like sunshine!

I’ve been watching them grow, waiting for mango season, and it has been worth the wait! I love mangoes and these are wonderful.

    Green mangoes make the best mango salsa. It tastes like apple sauce. That is one of our favorite things to do from our trees. Try it.

  2. Those mangos look great. We have them available here most of year as this province is famous for its’ mangos, but the mangos here generally have a grainy, almost pit like center. Your mangos seem to be soft right through the core. Enjoy fresh mango jugo!

    The mangos in our area obviously are a little slower than yours. There’s a lot of blossoms and tiny fruit on the trees. Can’t wait for them though they are one of my favorites. I used a bag of my frozen mangoes to make a tropical style trifle yesterday, following my rule since we’ve moved here of work with what you have.

      I remember in FL that different varieties fruited at different times. I had one that wasn’t ready until around September. Here it seems like you’ll have to visit me in April, and I’ll visit you when yours are ready 😉 Maybe we should grow some and trade?

        LOL! I have a tree that is about at my boob height right now so it’s gonna be a while fruiting. Mi amiga has some beautiful trees in El Ciruelo though! 🙂

  4. I hate to say this, but mangoes are the bane of my existence here. We have 5 huge mango trees surrounding our house and they are always, I mean ALWAYS bearing fruit. We can’t possibly eat them all. I had our neighbor dig a mango pit and we’ve resorted to burying them in the pit. When they drop heavily, it is usually about 5 wheelbarrows full of mangoes a day. They drop on our tin roof causing a fright every time they bang! I love the mangoes and the shade that they provide, but I really need a mango break! Last year I got a frozen shoulder from raking the mangoes everyday. Who would have ever thought that we’d be inundated with mangoes? lol

      Oh my goodness, who would have thought?! I suppose even the best of things can get out of hand. 5 wheelbarrows a day?? That is way too many. 5 mangoes a day is good, not wheelbarrows. Even I could learn to hate mangoes if I had that many to clean up.
