Mango

oh at the marvelous wonders in nature :: and the gifts she gives.

our mango trees are heavy with fruits, and we are picking some early to ripen inside (dark dry spot). on the sunnier side of our trees the fruits toward the top are starting to yellow, then they go pinky red. then the fruit bats eat them…..

when you pick a green mango it immediately gives this forceful crazy sticky squirt from its stalk, and the kids said it was a bit itchy. i picked a few, and the smell is so sweet and tempting. .. but i must wait. i remember when i was last home and picking persimmons with daddy in the woods behind our house {technically soon between our houses!!} the fruit smelled so sweet and i just couldn’t wait – oh dear.

have you ever had an unripened persimmon in your mouth? its fairly undescribable. and its quite funny to watch, when its not you. so i think i’ll just wait on these here mangos…come on pink!

mango smoothies, mango icecream, mango and chicken kebabs on the barbeque, mango muffins, mango and beef schechwan stirfry, mango in the bath. mango mango mango !!

  1. oh I am soooo excited. We had a great season a few years ago and I am hoping this one will be too. Ours are no where near ready yet as it must be cooler here. Funnily enough I just bought my first two mangoes for the season a few hours ago as a treat for the kids…♥Jo

  3. yum! Mangoes are my favourite, possibly partly because the cost here keeps them as a special treat. I cant imagine how excited I would be if I had my very own tree of them. No wonder the fruit bats cant resist them!

  4. A mango is one fruit that you can eat from the greenest of the green clear up to super sticky soft. My favorite green mango recipe is an Asian carrot and mango salad, soooo good. Here, I tried to look it up, there are lots of green mango recipes but this is the one that I recall from Cooking Light though I hate papaya so just up the mangoes and carrots instead…

  7. Oh you lucky thing, you! Mango trees!! They must be my favourite fruit but sadly they definitely do not grow here in Tassie. I will console myself with the cherry season soon to come though……. tasty, fat black ones – yum!!!
