Mango season is soon upon us in Central America

Mangos in SeasonIt’s the beginning of the local mango season in Costa Rica and Honduras.  They are still a bit green and those early ripe ones are a bit expensive for our budget but we’re buying a few to get ready for the days when they will be selling for three for $1 in the farmers markets around Costa Rica.

Now for those of you accustomed to eating mango’s that have been picked green and shipped a few thousand miles north, you might not realize the absolute joy of biting into a tree ripe mango and enjoying the tropical flavours that come alive with each bite.  This is what make the tropics so alluring to those of us born in the Northern Hemisphere.  Read this article in its entirety on our Today page on this website.

Then God said, Let the land produce vegetation: seed‑bearing plants and trees on the land that bear fruit with seed in it, according to their various kinds.” And it was so. The land produced vegetation: plants bearing seed according to their kinds and trees bearing fruit with seed in it according to their kinds. And God saw that it was good.” Genesis 1:11-12
