It's Mango Season!

Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Pacific Properties RS-47693

If you're visiting the Hawaii and are staying or visiting a home that has a tree with green or golden to crimson colored, plum-like fruit (although a little larger and some varieties are elongated heart shaped), it may be a mango tree.  Don't eat the fruit that has fallen to the ground.  Those are likely overripe.


Pick the fruit off the tree.  (Of course, ask permission of the owner.)  I like mangoes that are a sunny yellow with some hint of apple green and firm because I like green mangoes.  Most people love the fruit that are orange-yellow swirled with crimson patterns because these are tree-ripened, juicy sweet, delicious mangoes.  

Once you learn how to cut your mangoes so you can eat them without peeling its satin-smooth skin (time-consuming), serving them is a snap.  Have mangoes at a three-star plus hotel and you'll most likely be served a tasty treat (vs. over-ripened or bruised). 

If you're looking for a home and it has a mango tree, make sure you or your gardener will prune seasonally, rake up its leaves (as opposed to blowing) and discard the abundant fruit if found on the ground.  A mango tree can be a very high maintenance plant but if you love its fruit for breakfast, dessert, or in chutney, it's worth your efforts.

Caution, some people are allergic to mangoes and or its sap.

P.S.  You can still find mango trees in backyards of homes in neighborhoods such as Manoa, Kaimuki, Lanikai, Liliha, Nuuanu, Kalihi, Waianae,Wahiawa,Kaneohe and other green but sunny areas.

I absolutely love mangoes. Yummy!! I haven't had a chance to visit Hawaii yet but the fresh fruit is one of the things I most anticipate.

I just stopped by to say thanks for subscribing to my blog. I really appreciate it.

I think I well either move back to Jamaica, or move to Hawaii.  I love mangoes, and there are so many different types.  I am sure Hawaii has quite a few different kinds.  I love what I've heard about Hawaii
