Monday Mangos

We won't have a lot of mangos today, but it looks like Duncan, Neelum and Carrie will be the main varieties available. 

Zill, Van Dyke, Valencia Pride aren't quite ready to pick.
Kent, Keitt, Cushman, Palmer and the second crop of Jakarta, Glenn, Beverly and Bailey's Marvel are several weeks away from being ready to pick.

Today we will also have some 'Golden Pillow' Jak Fruit, Wax Jambu and Black Sapote available.

Real and Imagined Mangos etc

 We should be loaded with mangos now, but we aren't.  I apologize for not being able to meet demand.  Unfortunately we can't just order more... we have to wait for our mangos to mature.  Fortunately July looks like it will be normal.

But for now we have some Beverly, Duncan, Mallika, a few Carrie, a few Valencia Pride, and a smattering of other varieties.

We also have NS-1 Jak Fruit available, some Sapodilla, tasty dehydrated mango treats, and coconuts.

A Quick Update

Tomorrow we will have at least two Jak Fruit available, one 8 lbs and the other 11 lbs.  We sell whole Jak Fruit  for $2.50/lb, while cut Jak Fruit is $3/lb.

So far I've picked some Beverly and Jakarta.  We should also have some Tommy Atkins, Duncan, Irwin, Mallika.  Yesterday we sold out completely.  I hope I find lots today, but it looks slim.

It's a Great Time to Plant

Take advantage of the warm and rainy season and plant tropical fruit trees soon.  South Florida is a great place to grow tropical fruit.  Try to grow something, even if all you have room for is a container plant.

We have many varieties of mango and other tropical fruit trees for sale.  If you would like a variety we don't have, we'll try to get it for you.

Mangos for Saturday, etc.

The lull between strong harvests of mangos continues.  We hope our supply will improve in a couple of weeks.
Valencia Pride, Nam Doc Mai and Duncan are the main mangos which will be available Saturday.  We should have some black sapote and sapodilla.  I just picked a 35-pound jak fruit which I will cut into 2 to 6 pound pieces tomorrow morning.  Also, the popular dehydrated mango products will be available.  Yesterday's winds knocked down many mangos, so we will have plenty of immature mangos for those who would like to make pickles.

I just had a vegetable masala burger and put a slice of mango on it.... Delicious!  For a wonderful change of pace, try substituting mango for tomato in sandwiches, etc. 
Everything is better with mango!
