30 Bananas a Day!

I recently was in Maine and I bought a big bag of mangos. I brought them home to find, they were all fermented and gross inside!

Now I am back in California, and I thought, oh, I'm in California, much closer to the source, and I can't wait to have some delicious luscious mangos. So I picked up another bag and they were all fermented and gross too!

What is the deal with mangos right now? I usually attract very delicious and ripe fruit. But right now mangos everywhere seem to be bad, and they are supposed to be in season.

Anyone with a similar experience/ideas?

haha good luck on your mango extravaganza! i'll have to look out for the keitts. i am in cali so they should be nice and fresh!!

Watch out for overly squishy mangoes when feeling for them...they may have gotten bruised in transit and then fermented. Always check your fruit, don't just grab a bag and hope for the best.


I agree with Ryan, I didn't like the Haitian mangoes either. Keitts from CA should come in sometime September :) Best Mangoes ever!

Yeah fruit quality varies tremendously. I used to eat coconut very often, and was dismayed to discover that all the coconuts in Malta when I was there were awful and all green and horrible inside, even though all the ones we get in here in the UK are absolutely great!


So... it does vary. I just tend to find one good source (even just a supermarket I trust, anything really) and stick to that most of the time.


By the way, I think you may quite possibly have the best username on 30bad. lol xD

thanks mike. actually it was coined by a friend of mine, alden blease who is also on this site.

i am going to start going to some new farmers markets and seeing what i can find. i'm sure i'll find some great mangos very soon!

Totally man! You need to believe! lol :)
You've got me craving mangos now lol :)
same thing here in Dallas for the last 2 months :)

Hey Dylan,

I live near Maine and I haven't had good luck with mangoes, it's been so hard to find a good one in the past 2 weeks. Way too many seem to be green with black spots or if they are colored, when I open them inside they're a pale orange, very stringy and don't taste that good. They were delicious for a few months though. So I'm not complaining too much :)

yeah how strange is that, it's like all the sudden all the mangos just up and decided to stop being luscious

Yes, lots of similar eyperiences.


It's funny how many people say you can do lfrv everywhere but almost all fruits in the colder climates are inferior. In Germany, you buy 10 organic mangos and 8 are alcoholic before they're ripe... The only caloric foods that are stable are bananas and dates but it's not like you can endure on them forever. I say - longterm - move to where the fruits grow or build your own greenhouse and have the mangos where you live. Anything else means torturing yourself. Should I by some evil chance be forced to stay in a climate where there is literally only four weeks of summer, I will change back to rice, potatoes, quinoa etc.

imagine yourself in a warm tropical climate... sun and blue skies all day every day... hot... palm trees. now make a plan for how to get there! smile and start movin towards it! You will find yourself in an LFRV paradise soon :)
Maybe try just picking up some unripe ones and wait for a little while - possibly the ones you've been getting are damaged goods.
