Softball or mango - what's the variety?

Michael M. | Jul 25, 2003 12:04 PM

Yesterday I was biking by Patel Brothers on Devon hoping to pick up another box of mangos. This time they had 2 varieties, one regular sized (for the red/orange/green kind, not the really small yellowish kind) 12 for $5, or these on-steroids "Mexican" variety, 8 for $6. These were like softballs, really big softballs, and round like them, too.

But luckily they're much tastier than sports equipment - luscious, fleshy without being stringy, and you get lots and lots of fruit for your slicing-carefully-around-the-seed effort. Anyone know the variety?
