Amazingly Delicious 'Thai Mangoes' (Elephant Tusk)

Charles Yu | Jun 7, 201707:01 PM    

So far this Spring/Summer, I have eaten my fair share of mangoes. From Indian Alphonso and Neelam to Mexican Ataulfo and Small kidneys to Israeli and Brazilian Haden.

However, the following posted ' Nam-Dok-Mai ' ( aka Elephant Tusk Mango by the Chinese ) from Thailand trumps them all in enjoyment! It must also be the sweetest fruit I have eaten in Canada. Right now, available in Winco and Foodie Mart at $2.99 a pound

Flesh was sweet, fragrant, super juicy and custard y-smooth without any unwelcome fiber and no hint of tanginess. The one I ate was barely ripe and still had a hint of green ( force to consume it due to imperfections on skin which started the rotting process).

I cannot wait to try the really ripe yellow one on the left!
