Speaking of mangoes...

They are now available locally, watch for them. Some imported from other places, a few local.

We can see probably 25 trees from our terrace, and one is in full bloom, one is already setting fruit, and the others aren't doing anything yet.

They vary hugely based on variety and where they are growing. The greater the distance from the ocean the longer the fruiting period. Watch, it's fascinating.

I've been eating the yellow ones available at Bodega and Mega, and I assume at the Mercado for the last month and they have been mostly fine.
One day Bodega was out of the yellow ones but had a few green and red ones- we used to call them "alphonse" mangos in India- I think they have a different name here- and they weren't so good.
A nice young lady - Jehovah's Witness, informed me a year to two ago that there are 7 varieties of mangoes here.
Maybe someone knows more about this?
