Mangoes


Has anyone else noticed the small, yellow, wrinkled mangoes in stores recently? I did and called my friend who monitors mango, lime and watermelon imports from Mexico for the USDA to get the scoop. She proceeded to give me a 10-minute dissertation on Ataulfo mangoes and why they're awesome. They have almost no fibrous texture, the seed pit is tiny and they are sweeter and juicier than the big red mangoes we're used to. They aren't ripe until they're all wrinkly so don't let their ugliness put you off. I picked up a couple and they were so easy to chop up and eat. Apparently it's also common to just cut the top off and squeeze all the juice out. Best mango I've had in a long time.

I love mangoes. It is a sick irony that mango is the only food I've found that I'm allergic to.

we have just started eating more fruit. We used to make a fruit salad, but it would go bad since we could not eat it fast enough. So we now just do one fruit at a time. Currently we are rocking through a pineapple, but I am thinking of checking these out next. Thanks for the tip.

BorK, maybe you should have started with a grape or a blueberry before attacking a pineapple.

got a couple of these mangos over the weekend. The pit is really strange. The first one was close, but my second one was not ripe yet.
