Mango Rango...

There is good reason why the mango is called...
the King of Fruits

this diamond of fruits is rich...
rich in amino acids, vitamins, flavanoids, beta carotene, niacin...
calcium - the natural kind not in a pill...
iron, magnesium, potassium

this king of fruits is shown as an anti-cancer medicine...
good for eye health, digestion, skin...
and the leaves are great for diabetes - believe it or not!

even this little girl loves them...
well, at least, to stare at them while they last

and they were going, going fast

after all, they aren't just medicine...

they are just plain too good!

please do, have a mango, or two...
or three and four...
oh go ahead, do have them all

May your day, or night be full of God's sweet grace.


  1. Oh, that sounds delicious right now! DH and I love mangos. I wish we could grow them up here! I had no idea there were so many health benefits to them also.

  2. Lovely, colorful, informative post..
    Lina :o)

  3. Striking photos, the white and the shock of orange, very nice. I would love to grow mangoes but sadly that will never happen in the Pacific Northwest...I will have to enjoy them through you pretty photos. xo

  4. They really are one delicious fruit, not to mention how healthy they are!

  5. yummmmmmmmmmmmm I have a recipe for a really delicious mango salsa would you like to have it?

    1. Sure, Karen Deborah. I'd love to see your recipe!

  6. These pictures are gorgeous! My hubby LOVES mangos :)
    Blessings, Deanna

  7. Your mangoes are ripe already? Ours are still green and hard as rocks. Some of the smaller trees have no mangoes just flowers still. At least they'll be spread out nicely this year.

  8. One of my most favourite fruits, love them always.

    And the scented oils....oh mango is my fav.

  9. So that is what a ripe mango looks like. They don't sell them often in the stores here, but I picked two up recently and they were not exactly ripe. They were a greenish yellow, not fully yellow. Yours are gorgeous!

    1. I understand, Mrs.C that green mangoes are healthy, too. You can let the mango come to a riper status if you let them sit out for a couple of days. If you see them getting any dark spots on the skin, it's time to hurry and eat them : )
