The mango season has arrived with a bang and the vegetable outlets are all stocked with shining yellow mangoes smooth as silk to the touch luring customers who have a go at them, unmindful of their high price and insipid taste. However there are some exceptions I suppose, who are not tempted by the attractive arrangement of the fruit on the shelves or give in to indulgence for what ever reason.
Why don’t you try these? They are benganpalli and Malgova, you just can’t resist them, said my friend handing over a few of each variety to me.
Thanks. I shall certainly get back to you once I taste them, I said.
As expected they were not a match to Imam pasand, the home grown variety(the fruit has taken its annual leave this year) and I realized the reason behind their lack of sweetness. It is because the fruit is picked from the trees and artificially put to ripe, that too at a super speed.
