An extraordinary fruit!


Welcome to Scorching Summer!

Not much happening in my place during these hot summer days due to the heat 🔥 (temperature ranging between  40ºC/104ºF to 42ºC/107ºF) and in mid may it can reach 45ºc/113ºF

No time to think of the things happening in the world!

People are busy quenching their thirst

And mangoes and mango juice come in handy.

What a relief!

So not that much work with my cellphone camera.

So I just took a click of 3 Alphonso mangoes, fresh from the shop.

Alphonso mangoes are named after Afonso de Albuquerque, the Portuguese Viceroy in India (1509-1515), but I don’t know from where the letter L cropped in between instead of AFONSO… (Afonso to Alphonso) Maybe our Portuguese readers can explain better.

Have you ever tasted Alphonso mangoes? 

My friend, it’s worth the bite!

You are physically in Heaven!

Some say it’s the King of mangoes.

This variety of mangoes is well recognised for its unique taste and aroma.

These mangoes are not big, just 4 to 6 inches and one can consume the skin also.

I am not exaggerating if I tell you that this variety of mango is a national obsession in India.

No doubt they are costly!

How it is eaten?

People from India, Pakistan and Bangladesh eat the fruit whole without cutting it.

For a certain variety of mango-one can squeeze the fruit thoroughly turning its inside into a soft pulp, make a hole in the skin and suck the pulp out.

Are you aware of National Mango Day?

The day is celebrated on July 22 annually.


Be as sweet as mangoes.

Thank you for your visit.

Take care, my friend.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏
