A mango tree in the garden. That sounds so exotic to me. I have bought every mango, i have ever eaten. Never picked one off a tree
But i do have a plum tree outside. Maybe that would be exotic, to people from some countries.

If I remember right, in some tropical countries, even the flying foxes get snockered if the fruit they eat is over-ripe and has started to ferment.

None taken Ayrton, I was meaning that life is good for us down here, we are very laid back people and that saying means that we enjoy life.

There you go Mel, I've never seen a stone fruit tree [don't get around much] let alone a plum tree.

Those flying foxes are dreadfull creatures, they always seem to be able to pick out the fruit the night before you were going to pick it

OOOOOhhhhhh, mangoes, mangoes, mangoes! The fruit of India!
How it ever got over here to Venezuela is shrouded in mystery, but I've fallen in love with them. I haven't got a tree in my garden, but I've got three in front, one next door, two next door (the other side) two behind and one two doors down...
Mango chutney, mango jelly , mango pickle ( I just made 4 kilos today, if you like it HOT!)

What amazes me about Australia is how different things grow in the different states. I lived in Tasmania for thirty years, and of course, you couldn't even think about planting anything tropical, I had two fig trees, two peach trees and two different plum trees.

Mangoes here are expensive, unless you go to the Indian stores, and you can buy boxes of them very cheap. They are the yellow variety rather than the green/red. And they're delicious.

Best eaten as they are, in the bath!

Love mangoes. Quite possibly my favorite fruit, but that's such a tough choice. I think that's what inspired us to make some sort of mango product years ago so that we always had mangoes even when they were out of season. If memory serves correct, mangoes are one of the top 3 most popular fruits consumed in the world.

That is one of my favorites, as well.

Add the mangos to a salad (with avacado and bacon), throw them in the blender and make a mango coconut Liquado, or a mango shrimp dish served with rice.
