You are most welcome SpiritWolf, these nice people here sure gave some great ideas. We had that double flowering last year as well as this year, I've never seen it before even though I was born and bred in Bowen. No mangoes set with the first flowering, lots of blooms, and they are just setting now from the second bloom so I hope they stay on.
Loprraine in Canada tells me she gets mangoes from Mexico in their season as we do but they are much cheaper than what we pay for them here.

Wonderful recipes Daisy! I wish even more that I had a glut of mangoes instead of paying something like 4 Euros a kilo for them.

Are you this good with all fruit and veggie gluts? How about lemons?!

That it may be, Attie ... but for a kid like me who has to think "gee, shall I spring for a third or make two do?" when buying mangoes, it's simply a good definition of heaven!

Can you get ahold of them, Barb? If so, why don't you try both and report back?

To eat raw they should be more red than green.

As for chutney, try buying some rather than making. Can you get ahold of Sharwood's brand (English)? Here's a picture of their Bengal Spice Mango Chutney (my current favorite -- aside from my own!):

Some varietes grow wild here Ayrton, mostly along the banks of streams. They do grow pretty big as you can see
Who knows how many would be on this tree. They just fall off and rot on the ground --- and that's when the Parrots get drunk on them

Wow! I had no idea the trees were that large!! Tricky to harvest, then, right?

Oh! They get drunk alright, they stagger around squarking like crazy. Some pass out and lay flat on their backs to sleep it off. They do the same thing in freshly cut sugar cane paddocks or when they eat the flowers of the Silky Oak trees. Them and the White Cockatoos are just a mob of drunken bums behaving badly.

Ah ... it's so nice to have a good laugh on a Monday!!

Australia must be a wild place to live. All those poisonous things you have there ... and sharks ... and now drunken parrots. Never a dull moment, huh?!
