trini mangoes

Aren't they pretty? The nice rose coloured one in front is a beautiful Julie mango, tree-ripened. They may sell those in Tesco, or similar varieties, but you can't beat tree-ripened for sweet, juicy goodness.


I took sooo very many mango pictures to fit this week's theme, and I decided to create a set of some of them- there you'll see that in Trinidad and Tobago, we love our mangoes. Any which way - ripe of course, biting straight into the juiciness - half-ripe, with pepper, garlic, chadon beni, salt et (chow) - and green, well, we cut it up, dry it, season it for anchar or kuchela, or we curry it!


Other mango pictures from my sister, which inspired me to this.
