Mind The Mangos

We have no end of tropical fruits here, of course. We have several papaya trees in our yard. On the left is a photo of one of the trees as well as a photo of Ginette holding a couple of papayas. Bananas here are great because, purchased at the supermarket they are perfectly ripe the day you buy them and the day after. Avocados and cantaloupes are always ripe in the store also.

Mangos are something else. They grow by the hundreds on big (30 foot high) trees everywhere. They come crashing down when ripe. Makes a bit of a mess round about each tree. You just help your self to them. Most folks here have a handy fruit picker thing that lets you grab the fruit of your choice from high up in the tree.
