Moving Back to Jamaica

A blog about my Move Back to Jamaica after 20+ years of living in the US. Most of the articles focus on the period from 2005-2009 when the transition was new, and at it's most challenging.

T'is the Season

Bombay. Julie. East Indian. Stringy. Number 11. Blackie.

These are the varieties of mangoes that I have tasted so far this season, and we are already up to the point where the fruits are falling off the tree, hitting the roof of the shed outside and falling to the ground where they are ignored -- as we are already tired of them!

The sound they make at night hitting the roof of that shed is a little disconcerting... but it is a reminder of how plentiful mangoes are when they are in season.

Dem nice yuh see... come home and check it out!

The season came in full force - we have one tree (some kind of Tommy Atkins hybrid) and have already picked 5 or 6 dozen mangoes, most of which are bigger than my fist. Don't know how many bags we've given away already.

B,

How about setting me up with a "Tommy Atkins hybrid" -- it sounds like a kind of car!!

I have never heard of that kind of mango, and would love to get a taste!

Mad Bull, ah had to buy the Bomays -- ah ahve none to give, but they have plenty in the Clarendon park area.
