Australian Mango

Fruit of the Gods or God wannabe(s).Please excuse the lack of effort in the presentation. I only had enough self restraint to control my hands from dumping the camera and grabbing the pieces. Frankly if not for this post, I would be gnawing on it whole.The bliss of eating at own home sweet home. Chomp chomp chomp. Okay, I was also not alone (evidenced by the modeling hand in first picture) so I need to slice it up to share. But the seed (most Whites call it stone) is mine. Always.For those who are not as gluttonous as moi, take a peep here for a nicer way to plate this juicy fruit as well as methods to choose and keep. But bet most already know how. Left me who only knows how to eat (most times). By the way, the site has a few interesting mango recipes too but hey, I prefer mine in the nude - al naturel.

This imported fruit emitted a fragrant smell but the firm flesh was not as sweet as those from the Asian region, namely Thailand, Pakistan, Philippines and Malaysia. Unlike baked desserts, I prefer my fruits ultra sweet.

Conclusion: curiosity satisfied, no more next time especially when its price remains at this minimum:-

Teaser: In reference to my opening statement, I’ll narrate an interesting tale when I feature this delectable fruit again. Very soon.
*cross all limbs*

tummythoz,
This OZ mango is so expensive in Malaysia. In OZ, it's quite cheap when it's in season.

Actually, no mangoes are ultra sweet, right?

Nic (KHKL) said...

sometimes, my folks ask me to bring some back from sg cos it's cheaper and fresher. not a mango buff but the reddish colour of the skin does look attractive.

we think the best mangos come from India ( near Bollywood )
