Mango-licious!!

Mmmmm….mangoes!! Another of my favorite summertime fruits, whose season, sadly,  is on the way out. Just past the Smile petrol station after the Ahmed Hamdi Tunnel under the Suez Canal (when driving from Sinai to Cairo), there is often a stand selling fruits grown in the Ismailia region. I can’t recall the varieties we bought this summer, but there were quite a few. Mountains of Mangoes was, of course, my topic for the letter M in my book. Visit my website for more info and links on this delicious fruit! You’ll also find audio recordings of the Arabic names of several varieties of mangoes grown in Egypt: Fonss, Zibdayya, Ty-moor, Hindi, and A-wase.
