We seldom appreciate these flowers when in fact it is from these that those sweet mangoes we crave for are coming from.

What a moving post.

I am always happy why I see that my parents mango tree is producing flowers when I was a kid. I can't wait for the fruit and climb the tree.

I've never seen a mango flower before. It is good to learn something new ;-)

Maia said...

So this is how the flowers look like, never seen them before.
Interesting, such a long spike of flowers for just one fruit.
Thanks for sharing it.

Oh my just looking at the flower and the fruit make me missed the Philippines. It is a very common sight over there and yes I love mango too.
About my red mums I bought just this fall and I happened to know that they come back every year, in fact, a friend of mine gave me several mums of her, because it just thrive like crazy and you have to get rid of some. I bought several colors and hopefully they will come back next year. I have pineapple mums (as what they call) and the color is so pretty. And why I am inclined to plant many mums this year because they were on sale for only a $1 each pot. Now who does not get crazy of the price hehe. Happy weekend!

«Louis» had never seen a mango flower until now. Mango is one of his favorite fruits. He understands why they are so popular in so many cuisines.

That is a lot of flowers for one little mango. I have never seen the mango flower before. They are very pretty.

Oh my, Ann... a mango could never ever be miserable, certainly not the ones I savor here in the Philippines!

[With help from blogger friends, I've identified all my flowers today and updated my post. :-) ]

Francisca said...

PS. I added a photo of the fruit for you. They look like tiny cucumbers and one of the common English names is cucumber tree. I should have added a shot of them in my montage. And yes, as Andrea mentioned, it's sour and used in sinigang, a very sour Filipino soup. :-)

Neat that they grow in your climate.

It is too cold in Auckland for mangoes. This photo was taken in Malaysia.
