Mango's are here!!

Summer brings along another gift, the food of gods, the Mango...Many mango trees are seen bearing fruits across the city, the young boys clout arond the trees to lay their hands on the immature fruit called 'kaccha aam' ( raw mango) in hindi...
Reference to mangos as the "food of the gods" can be found in the Hindu Vedas and the leaves are ritually used for floral decorations at Hindu marriages and religious ceromonies...

I love the green ones. Just the right mix of sweet and sour flavour!
The kids in Hawaii and the Philippines treat them a little less reverently. They tend to throw them at one another. It's like getting hit with a rock! Ouch!
