Don’t wait to try these beautiful and incredibly rich and juicy mangoes.  A Mexican variety, they are not available for most of the year.  Their smooth, thin skin is green when unripe, changing to a glowing yellow as they ripen (and sweeten!)  Manilla mangoes are at their finest when their skin is a little wrinkly.  Their flesh is smooth and firm with no fibers and their taste is full, sweet and creamy.  A perfect treat for a sunny afternoon!
