Not long ago I mentioned that the mango trees were in bloom and the lorikeets were returning to our district. Now the mangos are fruiting and thanks to Dusty and El Gordo’s trees we are in mango heaven.
Did you know?
Mangos are an exceptional source of Vitamins A and C, as well as a good source of potassium and contain beta carotene;
Mangos are high in fiber, but low in calories (approx. 110 per average sized mango), fat and sodium;
Mangos come in many shapes and sizes and there several hundreds of named mango types; and
Mangos are a good daily diet staple; more mangos are eaten fresh all over the world than any other fruit!
In our neck of the woods the lorikeets like the mangos as much as we do as demonstrated by this photo taken by Dusty. The lorikeet is eating the fruit to the pit and only the pit will fall to the ground. I’d like to title this photo Lorikeet Butt:
Dusty and El Gordo kindly brought a bag of mangos over yesterday:
After we had a visit and they left to journey home, I promptly peeled the luscious mangos and made a lovely dessert:
It’s the simple things like friends who come bearing mangos that makes life so good in the campo.
