A Green (But Very Ripe) Mango From Mexico

Mexican Mango

Time for another mango update, albeit from the western hemisphere now. These big ones were from Mexico, and oddly were still green-skinned, thus leading one to believe that they weren't ripe yet. But one press of the finger told it all: if we didn't eat these soon, they would start falling apart.

And sweet indeed they were - and a bit tangy too. Yet they didn't have any of the richness of an Indian alphonso, and were also very fibrous. Well, they were better than I thought they would be, and I'll eat them again, even if they are a far cry from my favorite ones from Burma.
