It’s Mango Season!

We’re starting to see mangos at the fruit stands again. There are several varieties that can be found in the Dominican Republic. I pretty much like them all but in particular there are some larger ones that often are sold by the pound that are my favorite. These can be easily sliced like filets so you don’t get the strings stuck in your teeth.

Bani Mango Fair

The town of Mani (the proclaimed Mango Capital) has a Mango Fair and Expo going on this weekend. The video displayed is in Spanish but gives you a little bit of an idea what to expect at this years mango fair. It started on Thursday and will continue through tomorrow (Sunday). Bani has been holding this annual event since 2005.

Of course you will be able to buy a wide variety of mangos at the fair, but in addition there will be cooking demonstration held by PUCMM University Hotel School, at the Perell├│ Cultural Center.

The event includes exhibitions, tours of mango plantations, and artistic and cultural shows.
