Meet the Guatemalan Mango de Leche

Rudy Giron: Antigua Guatemala &emdash; Guatemalan Mango de Leche

While some people in the northern hemisphere are still suffering the struggles of a harsh winter, here in Antigua Guatemala we are already enjoying the benefits of Summer. The mercado, market, is full of summer tropical fruits: mangoes, jocotes de marañón, tangerines, all kinds of berries, pineapples, etc.

In my opinion, this is the most delicious mango there is. In Guatemala, this fruit goes by the following names: mango de leche, mango de pashte [loofah], mando de pita, just to list some its names.
