Do you know that they are cousins of pistaschio and cashew?
You may have it in various ways :
I came home the other day with a kilo of this fruit which happens to be my favorite and my wife’s. I bought 3 huge pieces for PhP 100 and received a comment from my wife, “Great choice; it’s not too sweet, or too sour…” The fruits were half-riped. I like it yellow, she likes it green…
I don’t know about you but they’re definitely the BEST compared to other fruits. And the Philippine varieties are the SWEETEST!
“A ripe super mango emanates a sweet fragrance, reminding you of tropical summer breezes which sweep across warm, blue seas. No other mango has ever looked this – bright yellow as blazing afternoon sun, smooth to the tongue, and leaves a persistent craving for a next one. These are the images that only Philippine super mangoes can evoke.” —> source
The way my wife sliced its flesh for easy scooping reminded me of my late Lola. She used to prepare mangoes the same way Tina does.
Isn’t it mouth watering ? Who can resist its beauty ?
“Mangoes are excellent source of vitamin A and C, which normally vary with and maturity of fruits. A 100-gram of mango contains approximately 69 calories, 20.5 mg of Vitamin C, 14.1 g of carbohydrates, 2.1 g of protein, and 45.o mg of potassium. “—> source
I’ve been to California and Las Vegas before and tasted mangoes that were round in shape, reddish yellow in color but my palate has been biased with our very own. Nothing comes close to Philippine mangoes.
There’s only one National fruit and I SIMPLY LOVE THEM!
How about you? What’s your favorite fruit/s ?
