Mangoes have been my favorite piece of fruit since I was little; I remember constantly asking my parents to buy mangoes at the store. We would watch them ripen on the counter, turn a brilliant color and wrinkle a bit before we cut in and enjoyed. The process was almost as fun as the eating! I was living in Arizona as a boy when I first developed my love for mangos - I even planted the pit to see if I could grow my own tree (unsuccessfully of course). They have a flavor unlike any other fresh fruit.
