The mango season in Tamil Nadu, India, starts from March until June. These four months are my heavenly childhood days. Like our life, mangoes to have different stages, from the baby mangoes to the ripen mangoes. And has lots and lots of mouth-watering recipes for each stage.
We are blessed with the huge mango tree, in my mom’s place in Chennai. It’s known for its ripen mangoes. So my mom leaves the mangoes in the tree to get it ripen naturally. Having a mango tree is awesome, I’m missing all those mangoes here.
My eyes sparkled when I noticed Mexican mangoes in our Indian Store. It’s a ‘Haden’ variety of mango, which was very plump and round. It slightly lacking in flavor and color compared to Indian Verities like ‘Panganapalli’ or ‘Malgova’.
