The tropical fruit in season

It is the start of summer here so that tropical fruits are now abundant in the market. The fruits are not only cheap but also of high quality. Take for instance the mangoes which have different varieties. The Indian mango variety is small but nice to eat when nearing mature. The apple mango is a bigger variety which is also good to eat when green. Our carabao mango is the best variety for the yellow ones because it is very sweet when ripe. It is also bigger than the usual size of the apple mango. But the cutest mango is called the Pajo or Pahutan which is small but terrible in taste. It is nice to eat when very ripe that you can finish 10 pieces in one sitting.

So much for mangoes but I guess the other tropical fruits in season are common to everyone. We have the watermelon, cantaloupe and pineapple which are all competing with the sweet jackfruit and papaya not to mention the banana.
