We received green Indian mangoes from 2 neighbors. Now we have a lot as can be seen in the picture. Yesterday we sent some to my wife's sister via courier because the kids there love Indian mangoes. That is one beauty in this village, there are many mango trees that during the harvest season, the owners would give away some of their harvest.

@Alexandoy I heard that from my cousin. She said that the mango tree in my other land is bearing fruits but they are still green.

Oh wow that’s a lot. I just remembered my childhood days when we have this old indian mango tree and every summer they would really bear fruit and we would have a harvest every day. There are some enterprising neighbors that would offer to buy that and sell them. But there are also bad side to that since early morning can be distressing since some neighbors would try to sneak in our house to try to get some for free.

@rsa101 we do that when we were boys but more for the mischief and not for the fruits that we steal.

What's the difference between the green and the yellow mangoes? I love the yellow ones, and often make juice from it. But I haven't tried the green ones.

There are many varieties of mangoes here. The green is the Indian which is good for eating as a snack. The yellow is the carabao variety that is good for eating ripe as a dessert. Our tree is an Apple variety which is good for pickling. There are the small mangoes that is good for side dish in the meal.

When fruit gets ripe there is often a surfeit of it. It's good the harvest can be shared with others.

Yes, when there is a lot of fruits, it is better to give away some instead of being wasted.

How are you going to keep them from going bad? So many of them. Can you make some kind of jam?

We just have to eat and the rest would be given away. This variety of mango is not good to be preserved.

That is one aspect of Filipino culture that I like, I love Indian mangoes even if we have our own tree but a different mango specie, guess we like what we do not have so my neighbor gives us Indian mangoes that I think they already got tired of eating, we also give some of our mangoes away especially when it's in season.

I would love to see that one ripe. I love mango so much. They have it here in the can and it's truly ripe. Too ripe for me at times.

Guess what, some of them are ripe. The skin does not turn yellow unlike other mangoes.
