Mangoes, Mangoes, Mangoes!!

On a nature walk in our backyard, I discovered that we have mangoes on our mango tree. I thought there would be just a couple but there are SO many! I can’t wait till they’re ripe… visions of mango smoothies, mango lassi(s), fruit salad with mangoes, spicy mango chutney, mango curry or how about eaten straight up… I’m salivating as I type!

Did you know mangoes are the national fruit of the Philippines and India? And the national tree in Bangladesh? Did you know there are 69 different varieties of mangoes? And that they’re part of the cashew family? Learn something new every day, right?!?


I still can’t believe we have mangoes in our back yard!!
