Refreshing and Flavorful

Interesting facts about mangoes: originally found in India thousands of years ago, there are now hundreds of varieties grown practically anywhere in the world that is warm and vaguely tropical, with six major varieties making up most of what we see in the store. The marvelous flavor and aroma come from some very complex chemical processes, but all anyone really needs to know is how good it tastes. Large football-shaped mangoes, usually from California or Florida, have more meat but a sometimes fibrous texture; smaller, palm-sized fruit from Mexico, usually a golden color, are sweeter and smoother textured. The tart/sweet flavor goes well with ripe berries and a quick spin in the blender.
