Mangoes are really delicious fruits and if you are Jamaican then you probably know what I mean. If you can think of a fruit as sweet and as abundant and has given you as many adventures as it has a Jamaican person, then you are dreaming. The reason why mangoes are so popular in Jamaica is the simple fact that they are plentiful, delicious, nutritious, and they come in all sorts of colors, sizes, and tastes. Jamaican mangoes are what you need after a long day to relax and unwind. They could help the person who wants to get vitamins and at the same time eat a fruit that tastes great.

The best thing about Jamaican mangoes however is the fact that they are so varied means that there is something for everyone. For example for the person who likes lots of mangoes will appreciate what Jamaicans simple call “common mangoes” or the yellow hairy mangoes commonly found. The best thing about these mangoes is that they are VERY sweet and they are usually in abundance.
