Six on Saturday – Fruit Harvest

We enjoyed out first Mangoes this week. We had one Pickering and one Nam Doc Mai Mango. Both were divine and worth the wait. The Pickering had a coconut taste and the Nam Doc Mai was sweet as well, without the piney taste I sometimes associate with Mangoes. This is the flower of the Nam Doc Mai.00100lrportrait_00100_burst20200509094313878_cover

Here is the fruit ripening.


Finally, I had to pick one because the fruit was starting to split from the 20 inch rain deluge. Here it is ripe on the counter.


There are still a few Pickering Mangoes ripening on the tree. I picked one and it shriveled a bit on the counter but was still very tasty.


Also waiting on my first pineapple.


Here is where the Nam Doc Mai ended up. As a side of Mango Salsa with Parmesan Crusted Salmon and Green Bean Salad. The Pickering Mango met a similar fate. I admit to having a considerable sampling of the two Mangoes while my husband wasn’t looking.

    Now that looks totally delicious! Definitely a rewarding week in your garden.
    I cannot imagine getting 20 inches of rain! Did you have much flooding in your area? We got 1/2″ on Thurs. and I was totally thrilled. Such small potatoes. 😉

    That’s pretty awesome! I can not grow them here. I have seen them in Southern California, but they are uncommon. My colleague tells me that the trees occupy significant space to produce just a few fruit. Consequently, they are not very popular. They are probably more popular in San Diego County.
