Mangomania. With Monsteramania too.

Mangomania. With Monsteramania too. (Mangifera indica (Mango))

More Mango and I picked two Monstera 'variegated' fruits also. They take their time to ripen after picking..but eventually that outer layer can almost fell off and you eat the interior white fruit that to me is like Pineapple and Banana flavor as I recall. Just be careful it's fully ripe..because like Pineapple it can give you that glass shards if not ready. It's got rules!

Wow! Very exotic fruit bowl, Stan. Straight from the garden too..ours would be from the supermarket and would never be as delicious as yours!

No,they were very candy. One other thing? When I scraped the peeled skin?...none of that bad skin taste. All organic and my plants have never seen an atom of pesticides.
Its mid October and I think I picked the September ones a bit soon as the Octobers have been very creamy a bit more sweet.
This was the first year for full sized fruits on a plant that was halfway to my knee when I planted it in ground in 2012.
Smaller plants bare(bear?) smaller but good fruits. I've had those. This year,it just went all out.

Wow! That’s incredible! I never get the fruit from my big Monstera deliosa! The ants always get to them first, :(
