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

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.
