Guatemalan produces several kinds of mangoes (dozens really), but by far mango de pashte (loofah mango) or mango de leche (milk mango) as it also known, is considered the best by the majority of Guatemalans. Interesting enough, I had never had mango de pashte outside the Guatemalan borders. I don’t know if the other mango-producing countries have them; does anybody know?
I am sure many Guatemalans living abroad, right about now, will be craving to have one or two of the mangoes you see in the photo above. Please, you know who you are, come forward and let us know about your cravings and desires and please don’t tell me mango no come mango! 😉
