Mango, манго - дары тропиков

Varieties of mango: some are very big. Grape and cherry are here for 'scale'.
But all mangoes are very sweet and nice! I love it!

Due to a warm winter and late start of rain season, it's been a bumper year (2010) for mangoes in Queensland, Australia. Mangoes trees at the backyards were also full of mangoes.
But Australian are impractical There were a reports, that rubbish trucks refused to take a bins because they were overloaded with mangoes!!!
Meanwhile they were still expensive in supermarket. We do not have a mango tree in my yard, so I paid from 99c to $2.99 per mango.

At least possums and flying foxes were happy and fat...

Special translation for Russians:
невиданный урожай манго в этом году создал проблемы - машины отказывались вывозить помойные контейнеры переполненые тяжелыми манго! У многих во дворах есть манговые деревья, и непрактичные австралийцы просто не знали что с этим делать.
У меня дерева нет, так что мы покупали манго, которые, однако, не были дешевыми в магазинах.
Самый простой способ сохранения манго в прок - заморозка или засушка.

    Какие непрактичные австралийцы!А у нас манго, как сообщил мне Егор, стоим 50-60 руб штука, и то незрелое. Егор поучает: "Оно должно пролежать в холодильнике 5-6 дней, тогда созреет".

    у нас столько же стОят - и тоже зеленые и все одного сорта. А вы пробовали соленые арбузы?

    Exactly, the bats here love them; they stay expensive because there's so much eaten and damaged on mango farms, even with netting the fruit.
    Solution, grow your own tree. One came up in our compost bin from seed.
    I too love mangos.

    Unbelievably cheap! We pay around $NZ6 for an Aussie mango. But supplies are rare. We used to get super mangoes but trade tit-for-tat (something to do with Australia not accepting our apples) has seen a switch to fruit from Ecuador, Mexico and Peru. These are crap, tasteless and mostly rotten inside!

    Crap mangoes!

    Nipun Tantia , I do like it, because is it not as easy to make the seamless white background, but colour of yellow mango looks unnatural for me.
    Mango trees are blooming now in Brisbane!
