The time has come to bid my favourite fruit ever, the Alphonso Mangoes, adieu. After an exceptionally long season where I’ve devoured every single golden mango that passed through my threshold, at last I can sit back and wave good bye for the imported cartons of mangoes. There are still a alphonso mangoes around but the taste has changed a bit, you know it’s time to let go. I’m also not interested in any other kind of mango, for once you taste the Alphonsos then that’s that.
I decided to celebrate the last of the Alphonsos by documenting their beauty using my camera. Each one as juicy, chunky, and so sweet you’d gladly give up chocolate for as long as the Alphonsos are around.
I usually suck the mango pulp by biting into the flesh and not bother with cutting it but for the sake of photography I cut one in two halves. Above is the half filled with the freshest mango juice ever, the below is all the half with the chunky goodness.
Then there is always the diamond cut mango flesh, which I personally don’t care for but they look good on camera. It’s also my husband’s favourite way of eating Alphonsos.
Good bye, my beloved Alphonsoes. Until we meet again next year by god’s will. I wish the next season is even longer than this year’s season.
Did you have enough Alphonso mangoes to last you until the next season? I certainly did!
