Following the mango harvest?

I once heard a tale told by a Bengali swami on another swami, one of whose brahmacarya students had gone missing for many months before he reappeared and presented himself. Ordinarily this infraction would have been met with harsh discipline, but in this case the brahmacarya explained that he had been following the mango harvest from place to place. The swami, himself a devotee of mangoes, immediately forgave his student and welcomed him back into the fold. My question: is this possible? Could one follow the mango harvest from place to place (and presumably variety to variety) for months at a time?
