This week I am pleased to accompany my friend @lenasveganliving in her entertaining challenge to publish a topic related to vegetables and fruits. Again I will present a fruit and it is...
MANGO (Manguifera indica)
The mango plant originated in India is perhaps the most consumed fruit by Venezuelans
El mango planta originaria de la India es quizas el fruto mas consumidpopor los venezolanos
This fruit, rich in vitamins and minerals, is distributed practically all over Venezuela. There are many ways to consume it, as a ripe fruit from the plant itself to the table
Due to the economic crisis that Venezuela is experiencing, mango consumption has increased and it is common to hear mangoes mentioned as chicken of the tree!
One of the ways I prepare mango is like "Ceviche", it is prepared with other vegetables cooked in lime juice
I also love mango jelly, a delicious delicacy made with green mango and sugar
We must be careful, our plants are being attacked every day by the fruit fly, which generates the rotting of our mangoes.
That's the unpleasant aspect of damaged fruit
