Just when my day is about to end, a vendor came and sold LARGE mangoes for Php 50 each. I bought two.
I can hold it only if I stretch my fingers wide open, and its about twice the size of a regular mouse, or a regular mango.
Look, it appears like this when placed atop a laptop:
I got too excited to eat it, cautious not to get another cut on one of my fingers as I peeled and sliced it.
The taste: sweet and just a little bit sour. I ate it with bagoong alamang or shrimp paste. It’s the perfect match, but I was expecting it to be a little more sour.
The mango came from Batangas and the seedling was said to have come from abroad, thus the extra large size.
I still want the native unripe mango. Nothing beats its juicy and crispy sourness! (Drooling)
