The Rise Of Mangoes

March 19, 2011

Photo Taken Yesterday at merienda time.

My heart will always be of the shape of a Mango because I will always have this special Love for this fruit! The Philippine Mango, Mangga as we call it in Tagalog, are known to be the sweetest throughout the world. And I guarantee you that you don't have to taste each and every Mango in every spot in the world just to give credit to that saying.

By the end of each February, fruit stands all over Cavite and also the nearby provinces are starting to be loaded with these bright sunny yellow hearts of different sizes and different shapes. Ranging from the smallest padera that are bite size, to the piko the medium sized just like the ones on the photo and to the biggest types which is kalabaw , litteraly Carabao or Buffalo, named after its large size. But no matter the size, Philippine Mangoes are all but SWEET!

If only I could give samples together with this Blog Post, I would just to share you how magical the sweetness of these Mangoes truly are!

By the way, all the Mangoes used in this shot are all consumed on a single meal by no other than myself :)
