Mangoes

A mango tree in bloom A mango tree bearing fruit
In February this mango tree was in full bloom (left). Those blooms have become the bevy of fruit at right. When the wind blows the thud of falling mangoes is a constant sound. I tend to duck my head into my shoulders walking under the tree.

It’s a twice a day routine to pick up the fallen fruit, or the wild pigs will make short work of them.

    • No, I’m not a big fan. They ripen and rot pretty quickly so we let neighbors know they can come pick them up. It’s a bit hit and miss though. Graham
