Mango season 2020 has arrived! Support your local backyard grower.

Free to good homes. Mango season 2020 has opened. I have placed mangoes out front for friends and neighbors to take their fair share - and, as always, the mangoes are FREE OF CHARGE. You are doing me a favor by taking the fruit I cannot use. I will try to keep the bin full, but this appears to be a light year. 

You need to supply your own bag, preferably a reuseable Palmetto Bay tote! The mangoes have been placed in their usual location in their tote. Note that the bin is under video surveillance, so don't even think of taking the cart!
Will we see our neighborhood youth setting up the traditional mango stands? Perhaps there will be more stands this year due to the pandemic.  Get ready for fresh mango, mango salsa, mango smoothie, mango salad, mango fruitcake, mango chutney mango jam! Support your local grower and South Dade agriculture!

I think we all should be permitted an agricultural property tax exemption on our homes! Support your home agriculturalist, buy local area mangos!


Food dot com has a listing of mango recipes including Mango Pies and Tarts, Mango Canning, Mango Desserts, Salads, Smoothies; well, you get the idea, it reminds me of the Bubba shrimp scene from Forrest Gump.  There seem to be just as many different recipes for Mango as there are for shrimp!

The listed recipe for the Garlic Lime Grilled Chicken With Mango Salsa sounds like an absolute must try for the South Florida area.


Have a tree not doing well, or just trying to improve the production?  I recommend the following online article (click the title to read) Mango Growing in the Florida HomeLandscape published by the Horticultural Sciences Department, Florida Cooperative Extension Service, Institute of Food and Agricultural Sciences, University of Florida.
