It looks like a smiling green dolphin.
It has been smiling at me, so I ate it.
It was delicious.

In Florida there are plenty of mango trees and mangos during summer (summer is all rear round). Mango season is late May, June, July. Each year in July there is an Annual International Mango Festival at Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden in Coral Gables Florida.

My favorite mangos are yellowish orange and have the shape of an egg and they are no bigger than human fist. They are sweet. I know them by the name Mango Rosa.

Other good mangoes soft and sweet are yellow oblong with really flat oblong seed. There is not much seed inside. It looks like it collapsed to give way to surrounding goodness.

Haden mangos are the biggest. Some have to be held in two hands. They are red and purple outside. Have a lot of juice and thick stringy pulp. Not too sweet. They are very hard and not tasty before they are fully ripe. Best tasting when ripe and soft.

My least favorite mangos have green color skin. They are not sweet and have whitish sap and a lot of stringy pulp.
