Thanks. Not sure of the variety I think it is Kent or Keitt, possibly an hybrid.

I thought it looked like a Keitt - but it's hard to tell from the photo.  I just finished a box of about 25 of them! (grown in Mexico).

:) I love those mangoes. It's the second best I had, when picked ripe. Best I had was grown by a friend from chance breeding (mangoes are prone to mutate when grown from seed, though not as much s apples do).

I like it being low on fiber, good tartness-to sweetness ratio and having hints of coconut and orange.

Annona, gift from a neighbor. I didn't know that they come in red (only ever seen the green type).

o good. To me it tastes like pears and vanilla ice cream.

That red is stunning.  I am not a custardy fruit person - why my neighbor loved me as I let him have all the white figs he wanted. One place I lived had a cherimoya (related I think) It was big! Owner did not enjoy the fruit so all the Asian and Latin old ladies schlepped over with their bags and filled up (in front yard). I can still smell that sweetness during peak season as the kids rode their bikes and skateboards over them on sidewalk. Took dog across road to avoid stickiness. Now I miss it...and the neighbors

Actually some of the fruits were very ripe and custrady but the rest much less so, somewhere between the very custrady ones and a lychee.

Ah!  lychee in ice water and popped free from skins - perfect outside on a hot day with friends :)

I love pomelos! We don't have a tree, but we exchange oranges and mandarins with neighbors for them every winter.

They are also great in salads.

Agreed. Round here the peel is also processed and braised with pork.

Pomelo pith is made into a marmalade-resembling product here.

Despite its appearance, it is in fact, used for making pomelo tea.

 

Yes - I enjoy the similar Korean one with honey that I think is citron though I see it as yuzu as well. . A cure-all they say.  Haioreum Honey Citron Tea
