This week’s bag features Mangoes! There are hundreds of named cultivars with various shapes, sizes, coloring, and texture. Fruit quality is often based on the scarcity of fiber, size of pit, and taste. Oils in the mango sap, skin, and even leaves can cause dermatitis. Even if one is sensitive to this, a peeled mango or drinking its juice usually causes no harm. Mangoes are high in Vitamin C and fiber and can be eaten in many ways. Raw mangoes are great pickled or in chutneys. Or they can be enjoyed straight from the tree, in drinks such as mango lassi, in curries, jams, desserts and many more. What else is in this week’s bag?
