IT'S MANGO SEASON!!!

and I don't mean this Mango.


I mean this mango.
As it turns out, not all mango's are created equally. The Alphonso mango, affectionately called "Alphonso's, Aphoos, or Hapoos" by Bombay and Goan natives is a yearly celebrated event. So prized (and expensive) are these succulent, perfumed fruits that locals have been known to go to great lengths like this

Crawford Market
to obtain the very best from their favorite purveyors year after year. The God's were smiling upon me one day during my brief trip to Crawford Market by putting me in the right place, at the right time. I gorged on what was undoubtedly the best piece of fruit that has ever graced my lips.
