I am serious the fate of the Federation rests in fate the Mango

Mango tree, very pretty, and the Mango flower is sweet,
But the fruit of the Mango is wonderful to eat.

Luscious, succulent mango fruit!
How do we guard you from the brute?
King of fruits, without dispute
To you we all humbly salute!

Ripe, and unripe in forms many,
Enjoyed universally by all and any!
Ah., delicious and sweet as sugar cane,
Protecting you can be wildly insane!

all other fruit are hereby banned from this thread. moderators take heed. or ye too shall be smote to a fruitarian oblivion of biblical proportions

Mangos are at one with the Time Cube

I think the best mangoes at the moment from Spain and Luxembourg. I would stay well clear of mangoes that come from Texas, Oregon, and the special mango from California, but was first discovered in Montana, are expired, and well past by the use by date. The Texan mango has traditionally been good for eating in July, and the Californian mango was good to eat in February, or May, I'm not sure which month.

Italian mangoes are a different lot, some come with an extra kick when you bite into the mango, some not as good it seems to be, and one not quite as good as it used to be. Irish mangoes are finally good after all these years, and starting to deliver on their promise of being a really good mango. I would advise to keep buying Irish mangoes as in a few years time, you will really enjoy the taste.

British mangoes are vastly over rated in my opinion, there is a perception that they are God's gift to mangoes, but in reality they are not, and they fail to deliver, even though they had one good year.

I would advise to stay away from Russian mangoes, you never know what you migh get.

What have you heard recently about Kazah Mangoes? How do they go with Spanish mangoes? Because I am planning my Mango diet Alan Lim Style all the way through the year and I am just concerned how the Kazah and Spanish mangoes compliment each other....

I wouldn't compliment each mango. German mangoes are in season.

Mangoes-The nectar of gods!

I am not going to tell you here the huge benefits that mangoes have to offer to people of all age groups but got interested here when I failed to hear the mention of mangoes and not the mention of Indian mangoes. There are many varieties of Indian mangoes and among them Alphonso and Kesar stand out for their taste, quality, size, aroma, fullness and texture. It would say( not tongue in check though) that they are the best if you have ever tasted them.

Bit off thread ain't it? Mellon head in a mango discusion?

When I lived in India during mango season we would get a kilo for just a few rupees, that means a lot for almost nothing. There would be mango pits everywhere. Families would take excursions out to the country side to just sit around eating mangoes. And how about mango pickles?

Yes, Mangos are great - especially with the skin. I recently got to buy "wild mangos" in an allout organics store and I thought that it wouldnt be any different from the usual type I get. But au contraire - the flesh was whitisher and mmmh, even better tasting than the regulars. Anyone know what Im talking about? They are smaller in size.

I'm sorry, but mango skin can be very seriously toxic. My wife, mother and one of my close friends break out in a rash if they even touch manngo skin (seriously). There is a special technique to eating a mango without touching the skin.... And those little mangoes, might be what we called "juice" mangoes. You roll them around massaging the pulp till its all squishy, then cut a small hole in the skin and suck the juice out. I recall 4 o 5 defferent varieties of mangoes, each w/ different taste..... metaphorical mangoes are beyond my expertise.

Curved, soft, brilliant, smooth, velvety, delicate, with varied tones, these mangoes are much more than vegetal products, apart from the fact that they are the result of well-learned and practiced skill. They possess a particular sensitivity, hey exhale tenderness and stir up an air of affection. To some, they are quite appetizing-by nature!- and sensual, and when there are two of them, they insinuate the closeness of love. They possess a metaphorical wealth, according to the visual poetry of their interpretation.
