Thought that would be the first one, but #4 ain't bad.

Well, this guy wouldn't be very good at guarding them.

Dog tries mango for the first time, and loves it!

Man goes in, fruit comes out. You can't explain that.

Bonus joke: Luxury mangoes is a slang term for high-end breast implants.

Mangos start to turn red when they're ripe. I'm not seeing how this tree is special. Oh, Vice, nevermind

Beautiful
Special fruit
Mango turns to red
And I get wild
The sugar rushes
Me outside my head

Meh. Let me know when they grow them so large they win fairground prizes and then throw them away because they're inedible.

MIL lives on 3-4 acres in Col. Chulavista Cuernavaca, Morelos MX.

My FIL and his house staff spent 30 years planting and tending exotics.

In about a month they will be walking on a carpet of rotten mangos.  The peacocks can only eat so many and nobody wants them.

That's some of the stupidest shiat I've ever read.

Man I love mangoes.  Had a Hume mango tree in my yard when I lived in Hawaii...that was heaven

So how many Indians can afford to eat a mango priced out of range for most?  I enjoy eating mangoes, and can afford it but wouldn't spend money on it. Another gimmick.  Lowest cast in India does the worst most dangerous  work, dies doing it, leaving families to starve and suffer. Wealth the great equalizer, fark that.  Everyone deserves to have a nutritious meal once in a while.

We've got a big mango tree in our yard, produces about a quarter ton of mangoes each year.

Literally can't eat all the mangoes it produces.  We freeze a bunch, and give away a bunch, but there are always more.

This year we reached an arrangement with a fruit store guy, who came over and grabbed several hundred.

In return we get free stuff from his shop (soups, fruit, jams, salsa, etc.) year round.  Seems like a good deal.

I picked up Mango in June and she didn't cost that much, but she is a bully.

*Miyazaki* Mango, and we don't have a single Studio Ghibli reference yet?

Fark, I am disappoint!

At least someone photoshop that mango as Totoro or something!

Now, he wants to make the world's most expensive mango more accessible for Indian farmers. "My vision is that every Indian household should be able to afford this mango," he said. "In Japan, it is expensive because it is grown in an expensive environment. In India, we can grow it naturally and cut down on expenses."

Good for him. Power to the people.

Different fruit entirely.

These mangoes are so expensive in Japan because the Japanese have a culture of producing exquisitely packaged fancy fruit used as ostentatious gifts. They have to be expensive to show how much the recipient is valued. Cube-shaped watermelons are another example. You can also buy normal fruit in a grocery store or fruit shop for more reasonable prices, though the prices are still high compared to other countries. These mangoes grown in India are not going to command such ridiculous prices.

They look like regular Bombay mangoes delicious, but not $50 each delicious.
