Well, the time is here. I saw a sign advertising Cheap Bowen Mangos outside a barber shop so I went in and got four littlies for $2. We waited impatiently as they ripened on the benchtop, picking them up daily to sniff them and feel for the tell-tale tenderness.
When they finally ripened, we didn’t bother with recipes, juicers, or any fuss whatsoever—we just cut them open and ate them plain, juice dripping down our hands as we went.
It’s still early in the season, so cheap mangos are few and far between, but expect to see more of them over the next few weeks and months.
The funny thing is – it was only a few weeks ago that we used up the last of the mango in the freezer from last season.
