RE: Litchis


re: "A word about mangos. Most of those in the supermarket are "Tommy 
Atkins" variety mangos [PLU
Codes of 4959 or 4051]. And they are not very good."

Would this be like the difference between the star fruit I can buy here
in the grocery stores and the ones you sent from your place? It was like
night and day, the difference between them...yours were so much
better!!!! I've tried grocery store mango's here, but they were
disgustingly hard to do anything with...skin so hard you couldn't slice
it, fruit so hard you didn't want to even bother eating it once you
finally got into it...I suspect they were not ripened and yet were being
sold as if they were.

My litchi tree produced very few fruit this year and the ones it did
<br>produce were confiscated by birds. So I drove to Pine Island
yesterday <br>and bought a couple of pounds of "Mauritius" litchis and a
few "Nam Doc <br>Mai" mangos. We are having a bad year for mangos in
Florida; dunno why. <br>Also bought a Mamey Sapote, which is an
interesting but not very <br>exciting tropical fruit [tastes something
like a sweet potato, which is <br>improved with lime juice].<br><br>A
