Weekend Harvest

Vegetable Harvest for May 2nd Week
Vegetable Harvest for This Week from the Garden
5 cucumbers, 3 yellow zucchinis, 3 green bell peppers and 18 okra

Mango Stand at Houston
Roadside Fruit Stand, Houston

Houston sprawl could make one hurl, but soothing the stomach and the sight are occasional roadside fruit stalls on inner farm roads. While coming back from a friend’s home, we saw this stall and had a sample of sweet mango from a charming boy. Came home with a box of golden yellow mangoes. I don’t know what it is, may be the boy’s charm rubbed on mangoes, they are heavenly delicious. The real miracle is they have that intoxicating ripe mango scent.

    Looking at your vegetable basket felt so pleased! The boy in 2nd pic looks curious. 🙂

  2. Do you guys get Indian Mangoes in Houston?

  3. Thats very nice, both ur harvest and the roadside stalls. Where are the mangoes from ? I think definitely they are not from India. The boy looks so cute and I loved reading the post esp the lines ‘boy’s charm rubbed on mangoes’…..beautiful !!!

    Your yellow mangoes look tempting… Mumbai streets are flooded with the alphonso and kesar. Not so much of the Badami (or Banganapalli). Have you read David Davdar’s “in search ofthe Blue Mango”? It is a fantastci book taking us around India on the best mangoes from all regions.

    Thanks all for your mangolicious comments.

    The mangoes are a Mexican import and sold here under the name “Champagne Mangoes”. Yellow, sweet and with mango scent, very India like.

    Narayan: Miss those banginapally mangoes.
    Haven’t heard about this book. Will look for it at local library.

    Mahek: How is your little boy doing? Hope you had wonderful time in Goa.

    Cumin Coriander: Congratulations on your new blog. Looks great and I look forward to reading about the things that make you happy.

    Hey Indira,

    Where do you get mangoes like those in Houston ? I also stay in Houston.

  10. Indira says:

    Hi Priyamvada and Zahabiya: it’s good to know that you are also from Houston. This stall was at Stuebner Airlines road and Spring Cypress Road intersection in Spring area.
    If you are on the hunt for those tasty mangoes, check out Canino wholesale market ( directions and details in Weekend Houston archives). We are also planning to go there for mangoes sometime this month.

  11. Zahabiya says:

    Thanks Indira. Will sure try to visit there sometime soon.

  12. Priyamvada says:
