We can only get one type of mango around here.  I think that they come from Brazil.  They are large and have green and red skin, and the fruit is orange.

It's that time of the year again in Australia. Calypso mangoes are now selling as low as a dollar apiece. Slurp, slurp, slurp!

I've been buying frozen mangoes for smoothies. They do the job while I save the good fresh mangoes for eating!

Mmmmmmm. Mango season!

I now have to share my mangoes with two little girls. Or eat them after they've gone to bed...

Seriously - it ain't a smoothie without mango!

I really like the frozen for this purpose - much easier, cleaner, etc...

Back in the '70s I had a navy friend who was a hillbilly from Ohio who said that the vegetable that his folks called mangoes is what the rest of us know as bell peppers. Has anyone else ever heard of that?

I Googled "Do hillbillies call bell peppers mangoes?" and it looks like they do Clever

Mangoes are back!

Had my first one of the season. Superb, even though it's a little early in the season.

With help from two not-so-little girls, it was gone in seconds...

Do you ever get the feeling we've been there before? :D

Also two new mango varieties, known as Lady Jane and Lady Grace, are about to go into commercial production in the Northern Territory. Can't wait to get a taste of those. However, I fear Aussie mango producers are looking more and more at export markets and that is going to raise local prices. :cry:

We had the same thing in the US when the Japanese developed a particular hankering for black cherries, prices went through the roof for a couple years.
