It is Spring time in Puerto Rico, which means the rainy season is almost here, they days are getting hotter and more humid AND our mango and avocado trees are in bloom! As mango and avocado are two of my favorite things, this makes me very happy indeed! Our mango piña (the fruit tastes like a cross between a mango and a pineapple: delicious) is blooming like crazy this year. It is possible that last year was its first year to fruit, as it gave few fruit, but boy were they tasty (and the most amazing purple). This year, the tree is covered in flowers. Fruit flies love the mango piña too and last year, they took the lion’s share of the fruit. This year, ther should be plenty for all of us to share! 🙂
