I love mangos. Here in Brazil we are in full summer season. I ate at least 2 mangos of about 1kg a day from November to April, and also 2 papayas, and bananas too, plus orange e lemon juice. Another fruit of the season is the kaki, a red fruit also. And Italy grapes, a delicious green grape, from Bahia, a must. This week temperatures are up 35ºC in São Paulo city, and it feels 38º or more on the streets. The sun is burning like hell, no rain last few days. We are waiting the "waters of March" that close the summer, but not yet a sign on the horizon. People are afraid. The air is unbreathable. Today moistness is 20%. Fruits are the best remedy!

I grew up in a mango grove here in Miami and presently grow nine cultivars (one of which, the Guthrie, is unique to our property, and a second of which, the Hargreave, is new and still exists only on a few properties, though Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden now is promoting it). Among our hundreds of tropical and subtropical fruit trees, we have some twenty mangos.
