What's "in season" in Mexico during the month of May?

SocksManly | May 6, 2012 11:58 AM

I'm in Mexico right now for a few weeks back and forth between Cuautla and DF, and though I've been here many times, I don't think I've ever been here in May. So I'm wondering, what's in season right now? Anything I should know about?

I think I read there's a lady who sells mushrooms in Mercado San Juan, though I've read anything from May to August for those. I think she mostly sells Morels.

I tried my first fresh Guanabana yesterday... I was smart enough to ask whether to eat the seeds, but not smart enough to ask whether to eat the skin, which I ate... it tasted something like an old cheese, at which point I kind of knew I made a wrong turn. I think I'm paying for it a bit today. :)

Also tried my first Mamey which was incredible as well. My wife says it's her favourite fruit (she's from here).

Bought some yellow mangos that were particularly delicious too.

I like to cook, so if you can think of anything that's good in late spring early summer, lemme know! Thanks
