Mango trees are plentiful here in gtmo and the season for the ripe fruit is upon us.  We have been enjoying fresh mangos for the last couple of weeks.  Mangos are one of our family's favorite fruits, so this is spectacular!  Not only is the fruit the best I've ever tasted, it is free!

Science fact of the day: Mango leaves, stems and sap contain a substance called urushriol - the same  substance found in poison ivy, poison sumac and poison oak - and will cause a similar reaction. Vic learned this the hard way when he first arrived last summer!

  1. Wow! I'm a little jealous! Mangos are delicious. I didn't know that about the stems, etc., though. Thanks for sharing your knowledge with us!
