Think You Know Mangoes?

I don't know how I missed this earlier, but June is Mango Month. Not that I need an excuse to devour mangoes. I can't get enough of this juicy sweet fruit, and I'm convinced that anyone who doesn't like mangoes has simply never had a good one. In fact, I joked to PartySugar that the last question on this quiz should be "Do you like mangoes?" and that "yes" would be the only correct answer.

But I decided to be nice instead, so I've rounded up some fun facts about this ubiquitous, delicious fruit. Find out how much you know about mangoes!

@Ikandy, my family is from Trinidad, too! My mom retired and moved back a few years ago. When I was younger, we lived in Panama and had the biggest mango tree in the backyard. So much fun to climb, and so rewarding to come down with an armful of mangos!

I'm allergic to the oils in the skin as well. Mangoes belong to the sumac family, which includes poison oak. It took me a few times of getting a mysterious, itchy rash on my lips that I finally figured out what was causing the problem! Now I wash thoroughly, then peel, then wash up again and cut into it. I used to enjoy eating it all sloppy and juicy-like, gnawing on the core and pretending I was an islander, but oh well.

Everybody who loves mangoes must try the Alphonso. Every year from April-June, my house sees crates of Alphonso mangoes being consumed. Hands down the best kind.

I love mangoes, but I am allergic to the sap and oils in the skin. I discovered this the hard way! Now I just have someone else peel them for me.

I liked mangoes before, but after visiting my sister who was doing mission work in Haiti, I began to LOVE mangoes! Haitians pretty much survive on them sometimes. I got to eat different kinds of mangoes while there to. Every time I eat a mango I am reminded of the wonderful people I encountered while there. (I know that sounds so corny...)

It didn't say what is the world's most popular fruit. It asked FRESH fruit. I have a mango tree in my yard and it is producing heavily right now. I LOVE MANGOES!!!!

I think #4 is wrong - bananas are the world's most popular fruit.
