The mangoes shown on one of our mango trees at False Bluff in the October 2, post have ripened and it was worth the wait. We eat them as is
...or, juiced, we drink them.
In Virginia we pick the hillbilly mangoes - which are really pawpaws - directly off the tree (or off the ground if they've just fallen) and eat them as is.
Wherever and whichever, they are a treat.
