I got two guys who are now busy plucking mangoes. There are many they said not visible to us. They have already plucked many and hope to get atleast a thousand They would now have to be kept for ripening. I am only hoping the rains have not spoilt them.

I will eat them, make fruit juice, distribute and may even sell this time as they are far too many hoping they will not rot.

I wish we get back to this. What is more important than food, shelter and clothing and think it is that order. We can do anything once we have those.I get why these posts are so important.

@dpk262006 ah.. maybe there's no specific name for that in your country.. here we call it apple mango because of its red color and it is a mango with a round body like apple..

It is so abundant to have mangoes. I like pickled green mangoes. I am drooling and wanted to eat some.

@allknowing I am sure it would be fun to have ripe mangoes and have a picnic in the backyard.

You are lucky that you could get fresh mangoes from your garden and in fact you have started getting them plucked. I wish I could have some fresh mangoes from the picture.

Plucking mangoes? Are mangoes feathered?

I do not blame you since you must have been only plucking feathers and so you associate that word with feathers. I not only pluck mangoes I even pluck courage.
Pluck definition, to pull off or out from the place of growth, as fruit, flowers, feathers, etc.: to pluck feathers from a chicken. See more.

We finished plucking. There are some more on the tree that have not matured. We were able to sell some and the rest hopefully will ripen in a few days time.

You will need lots of containers and lots of storage space.

Are these mangoes? They look like plums for me That's great that you have the harvest. I often buy the fruits and it is a big budget. You are lucky to have so many fruits

I don't grow mangoes. I used to make mango bread, but now we don't eat many such baked goodies. There's something about the flavor of fresh mangoes that doesn't appeal to me.

Our mangoes are yet to mature. It may take two/three weeks more to mature and then they will be plucked for ripening.
