I learned Sunday, July12 that there are many kinds of mangoes at the mango festival. Who knew? This picture depicts a mango auction and boy these bowls with 4 to 7 mangoes each fetched a lot of money. As you can see there are many varieties. The Auctioneer spoke so fast I couldn't understand what the mangoes were selling for but I know it was more than I wanted to spend. I would buy them if they all didn't taste the same to my palate and if I wasn't allergic to mango skins. For example 6 Alphonso mangoes from India are $150 on Amazon (shipping included). I did some mango tasting (3 kinds) and butterfly looking (they have a wonderful butterfly garden at Fairchild) and went home.
Were any mango lovers there that could tell me what I am missing?
P.S. The ribs looked good.
