Yum! Yum! Yum!

Behold, an abundance of perfect, luscious, tree-ripened, organic mangos, just picked off the trees in our backyard!

And this is only a small fraction of our bumper harvest. Yay! Although the fruit bats have been having a field day, too – they’ve probably eaten as many as we’ve been able to pick.

I love mangos. There can never be too many mangos. I will never get sick of eating them – but the question is can I get through all of them before they go off (tragedy!).

Are you envious yet?

    The photos were only taken on my mobile phone, but you get the idea. :)

    Can I come live with you? I will do laundry in exchange for mangoes.

    I would provide a coherent response, but i seem to have bonked my noggin rather sharply after having slipped on a puddle of my own drool.

    I live in Bellingham, WA and I’m jealous.

    Considering they are $4 ea in our local supermarket, you are sitting on a goldmine there!

    Yes, yes, I’m now jealous.

    MMmmmmmmangos! Nothing tastes as good as a fresh mango. My husband and I went to Sri Lanka for our honeymoon, and we used to feast on them several times a day. I will never go back to grocery store mangoes again.

    Mangos are my favourite thing. Wish I was there.

    Since I live in Maine & am dealing with ice & snow & we are some months away from seeing any growing things,someone talking about picking mangos off a tree in her own yard sounds a lot like an alien describing Mars to me. You are very lucky, I am sure they are delicious, I know I love to drink Naked’s Mango smoothie, but I have no point of reference to being able to pick any kind of exotic fruit in my own yard. Enjoy your lovely fruit while I wait to once again see bare ground for a few months. Maybe I will get a bottle of Mango smoothie today & pretend Spring is here. :-)

    Oh mangos! They look delicious – you are so lucky!

    Oh how do I envy you!!

    I love mangos. I used to be able to get them fairly fresh, but now the only ones available have been trucked a gazillion miles and generally taste bland.

    I have to content myself with using frozen mango in smoothies. At least the frozen mango was picked when it was ripe.

    Mangoes remind me of India.
    Those mangoes look, ripe, rich, juicy, full of summer.
    Enjoy them while they last:)

    Oh my gosh, yummmm!!! I’m sooo jealous!!! I spent a few weeks in Cuba in July a few years ago, and there was a mango tree just outside my room that was overloaded. I ate so many fresh mangoes, for breakfast, lunch, dinner, and of course cocktail hour (mangoritas – yum!). There’s nothing like a fresh-picked mango – those store-bought ones just aren’t the same. Enjoy!

    I hate you. You and your Damned! Mango! Porn!

    My very favorite fruit – and I’ve only EVER eaten them from a supermarket.
    I love them plain, in fruit salad, and my absolutely fav – mangoes and sticky rice!
    I am positively green (with envy, that is).

    I miss mangos during winter, too, so I am sympathetic to all you Northern Hemisphere people currently suffering from lack of mangos. :) Nevertheless, I have no shame in gloating.

    John has been on my case to sell them. But NO. When mangos are concerned, I’m selfish. Even if I have to freeze them or make mango chutney or something, these are mine. Hehehehe.
