Champagne Mangoes to be precise. They are certainly not local and not organic either but they are definitely worth breaking the rules to try. Buy some now. Found mine at Whole Foods, 2 for $3.00. These yellow mangoes are silky soft, sweet and fragrant and don't get stuck between your teeth the way the more commonly found green/red variety does.
Izzy and I cannot keep away from them. He would eat one a day if I let him but I only bought six so I have been trying to make them last the whole week. If they have them this week I think I will be grabbing at least a dozen. We eat them as is, in smoothies, on top of yogurt and I am envisioning a vanilla-mango pudding.
