Mango tree



Ahh…the mango tree in front of my house. I still haven’t figured out how it works. The fruits are psuedo-seasonal (I guess) but they come at seemingly unrelated parts of the year and in varying sized batches. The trick is being able to time it well enough to let them grow nice and large, but still pick the ones on the outside of the fence before the neighbors do. Well, actually I don’t do any of this. I just watch as all the action unfolds. I will spring into action when our papaya starts fruiting. Papaya trees grow unbelievably fast and can have large fruits in less than a year. I think I’ll prefer those over the sour mangoes, but I do know many who would disagree with me.
