Spring sprung earlier at my permanent site in the bread basket of Swaziland than in my training village. I left peach blossoms to find peaches already growing and what’s even more exciting, the first mangoes are already growing!
My family explained they have a variety of mango trees, even though I thought all the trees looked the same. I’ll have to learn the differences. One variety is called fish, because of its shape. Another had a name that matched its smell.
I was told that the fruit should be ready starting in December. My Swazi family doesn’t can or make pies, so I have lots to teach them!
