California Organic Keitt Mangos are Back!

I look forward to the arrival of California Kiett mangos every year. Have not seen them mentioned here before.

These are hugh green skinned mangos. They have a relatively small pit, so you get your money's worth even at more than $3 each. The flesh is smooth, not stringy. They also are picked riper and have not been subjected to the hot water bath that imported mangos, even organic ones, go through, so the taste is like those I've had in other mango growing countries, seldom found in even the best imported ones.

Whole Foods has had piles of them lately (One of the few things that gets me into a WF). Monterey Mkt was just about sold out of small, cheaper ones today. I get em while I can and cube and freeze as the season is short (late Sept-mid Oct)
