fruit I grow

The mango song

Every little child sings this song in Grenada, Trinidad and those islands that were once settled by the french

Mangoes....... mangoes....... mangoes
Mango Rose
mango sweet
mango Rose
mango sweet
I want a penny to buy mango Rose mango sweet
mango doux doux souce matin
savez vous all for me

I grow carambola, pommerac, three varieties of louis, erwin and julie, barbados cherry, guava......large pink and common pink, limes, oranges, grapefruit, tangelo, coconuts, passion fruit, golden apple, damson (gooseberries in barbados, cherise in tnt) jamaica ackee and I can't forget a big old tamarind tree that does mess up the yard. I make lime pickles, jams and jellies, salsas, pickles. I had a large mango crop this year and have been freezing the pulp for later. Made some mango sorbet and ice cream and they are delicious...especially with some fruit preserves on top. Made a mango cheesecake too. Have several boxes of pickles, salsas and preserves made to sell. I am thinking of doing a craft and produce market at home inviting others to come and showcase their products and sell. Will probably do it at the end of this month.


  1. Oh my! My mouth is watering here!

    Thanks for the reminder of childhood with your mango song!

  2. Lovely fruits there! With a bounty like yours, I'd be singin' the mango song even in my dreams:)) I don't know what a jamaica ackee is, but with a name like that, it must taste out of this world ;D

  3. Anonymous I am mangoed out, carambola tired and limes fed up LOL. Thank you for visiting. I will post later on the jamaica ackee.
