Wordless Wednesday...Not Just Another Healthy Fruit.

 

We were on a walk one morning in early summer and saw these hanging from a tree.

 

mangos

 

When we first moved to Florida many years ago, I saw my first mango tree. We were in our bass boat on Lake Ida trying to show the fish that we knew what we were doing when on the bank was a mango tree with the most interesting fruit hanging from it.

 

They were beautiful and before they ripen and become the green and reddish-orange and deep red colors that we see in the market, are all of the colors that I love.

Mangos are also very nutritious. They are low in fat, cholesterol and sodium and high in fiber and vitamins C and A.

 

And, they’re pretty easy to cut, if you know how.

Kathy I am almost a shame to say that I have never had a mango.  Time I change that and try one.

James Dray you may have but didn't realize it. 

Dorie Dillard I love them in salads as well!!! The link shows a video of how it's done and it's really pretty easy! 

Marie-Denise Kratsios you're right about fruit and if you're watching your sugars, you have to watch your fruit intake. We put them in our protein shakes along with bananas or blueberries.

Lise Howe when they're in season here (and like 10 for $10.00!) we go through about 1 a day!

Sandy Padula and Norm Padula, JD, GRI NMLS#1483386 I haven't tried them green but don't imagine I'd care for them that way.

Ron and Alexandra Seigel I don't have the mango cutter that is shown in the video but you can feel the seed in the mango. Once you get the hang of it, it's pretty easy. 

Gabe Sanders We've had orange, banana and grapefruit trees but I'd love a mango tree.

Nina Hollander I wasn't when I was younger. Larry isn't crazy about them but eats them. 

Scott Godzyk I buy them frozen to put in my shakes.

Donald Urschalitz it sounds good to me!

Sally K. & David L. Hanson Larry says they taste like gym shoes...of course I'm not sure how or why he would know what they taste like. 

Michael Jacobs When they're not in season, we use the frozen ones in our protein shake.

LOL Sheri Sperry - MCNE® these were pretty low hanging. 

Joe Pryor our first house had so many fruit trees, I couldn't give the fruit away. 

William Feela I think they're one of those fruits that some people either like or not.

I have no idea if I like them or not. I think I've had mango something or another but I don't think I've ever tried the actual fruit.

Mangos and kiwis were both fruits that I never saw or tasted until I was an adult.  I'm thinking that is because neither was widespread in the grocery stores in our area back then...  times have changed and for the better as far as availability of different kinds of produce goes. : )

I remember eating lots of mangoes when I lived in FL. They were one of my grandmother's favorite fruits and she always had them at her house.

Mango's are a healthy fruit . . . . and it's nice to pick them fresh and eat them.

Good luck and success.

I would definitely need a lesson on cutting mangos. I do like them in dessert dishes.

I love mangos, and usually eat a half dozen in any given month!  I don't have any growing nearby, but our local store ships plenty of them in.
