This & That Including What Ails

Fruits From Mr Nice Guy

on June 30, 2022

These mangoes are large and I could share with Boy next door as he loves mangoes too.

13 Points loves mangoes but is away in UK visiting her family and joining her Michelin star chef boyfriend in Italy thereafter.

I managed to share one of the large mangoes with Dr Bones. He does not eat mangoes but his wife and sons do.

Neighbor who cooked for me does not like mangoes and so, I could not share with her.

I kept the small mango, size of a red apple, for self. It was very nice to share the mangoes especially when I received it fresh.

Mangoes from Australia are peach flavored whilst mangoes from Philippines has its own unique non fibrous texture.

My mum used to plant coconut mango, hawaiian peach mango and papaya mango trees in our old place of residence. She loves gardening and it is her favorite hobby to the fruits of her labor and she got the most joy seeing neighbors enjoy the fruits she share when fruits ripen. I learnt to share the harvests like my mum except mine are gifts from friends.

These unique species for each different type of mango tree saplings were carefully grafted by a man in his late sixties. This old uncle as we call him, has a sprawling business garden plot that sells flowers, potted plants, landscaping furniture and fruit trees. My mum chanced upon him and bought up his ‘experimental’ mango tree saplings.

Coconut mangoes were shaped like coconuts and weighed on average a kilo each fruit. I loved the papaya mangoes as it was almost 6 to 8 inches in length and its seed was so slim and thin, giving us mango lovers a lot of mango flesh to enjoy.

These gifts are Indian mangoes and Indian mangoes to me, are best.

Dr Bones received this from me
I kept this set for myself
Boy received this from me
Green Muscat grapes from China and purple black grapes from S Korea
Cherries, blueberries from S Africa, raspberries from USA, Sun plums and Japanese apples

Mr Nice Guy was right, other than blueberries and raspberries, I would not dream of buying Korean grapes or muscat grapes. I only eat Thomson seedless grapes!

This is also my first time seeing Japanese apples…its peel is so rough that it does not appeal to me. But I will try it. πŸ˜†

Silly me! Mr Nice Guy wanted me to try different fruits. Anyway, I froze the grapes. I usually use frozen grapes to ice the water I would drink and eat the melted grapes after.

Frozen grapes are like little popsicles and fun to suck till it melts and chew on the grapes after. It also prevents food wastage for me.

Thank you Mr Nice Guy. I appreciate the time and trouble you took to get me these useful fruits.

      There are πŸ˜ƒ
      In Hawaii, their popular mango grown is the peach version. In the tropics like us, local growers also graft rambutan saplings with lychees. It is really delicious too.

    I’d forgotten about frozen grapes!!!!!! Once, and only once, I followed a recipe to roll grapes in kool aid before you add the sugar. BAD idea for kids!!!!!!!!!!! That staining powder went everywhere!
