Summer Fruit

The sun on the one variety of Mango looked so pretty this afternoon that Roy sent me for the camera.  The landlord has 5 or 6 different varieties of Mangoes; but I don't know which is which.  They look pretty and always make me think of ornaments hanging on a Christmas Tree.  The first kind will be ready by early July and the latest ones in August.

There are Bananas growing also; but it was the wrong time of day to get a good picture of them, they are in the shade so I tried from above and below and neither one is very good; but it will give you an idea of them anyway.

The limes are pretty close to ready, some are, some aren't.  These are the little limes, Key Limes maybe?

The peaches won't be ready for awhile and the landlord said that they won't get that big because of the heat; but that they will be sweet.

It doesn't look like there are many, if any Avocados on the tree this year, the wind blew off the blossoms before they could be pollinated I guess.
Looks like a tasty summer coming up.

Very nice fruit trees. It's great having fruit trees. Today I picked apricots. You mention avocados and this is the first year we may have some. There are about 15 in one tree and another has a few as well. We have so many avocado trees and finally we may be able to enjoy.Hopefully they don't fall off.Ayeeeee! Enjoy the fruit when it is ready. Take care.

Thanks Gloria, I will miss the avocados as they are so good off the tree. Oh well.
Have a good week.

Hello Brenda!

Love the pictures of all the fruit. When I move down to Nayarit I want to plant a lemon tree because we are always looking for a good lemon.

The mango tree that you photographed looks like "Kay" mango. They are very tasty. My favorite variety of mango to see grow is the ataulfo because they looke like raindrops.

I did a post back in May about Mango's and there is a picture of a tree that looks like it has little rain drops all over it. The link is below.

Brenda said...

Hi Trinidad, yes that tree looks like the Kay tree pictures you have.
The Ataulfo one is here also, if I am correct it is the one that is later and is ready in August or so, it is always later than the other ones anyway.
thanks for your input.
Have a great day.

One of the joys of Mexico is all of the fruit right at hand. I enjoy walking around the garden just watching it grow.

Brenda said...

Steve I agree, it is so nice to just walk out the door and grab a lime and other fruit during the season.
I could do the same thing in Canada with apples, raspberries, strawberries,currants, saskatoons,and cherries during their seasons so the idea is not new to me; but the different varieties still are, even after all this time.

Breez: Thank you so much for the compliment.
I see that you are writing on your blog again, I will have to go and catch up on what you are doing.
Thanks for commenting.

Love this fruit season. I would like to have a peach someday. Senor is experimenting with different lemons, and grapefruit from seed and yes, that is the key lime, the little Mexican lime, we have 3 and they all do well. LL

Brenda said...

Linda I am hoping to get at least 1 peach this year to taste, so far I have never managed to get one before the people walking by on the street get them lol.
Real lemons?? Not sure I even remember how they taste anymore lol.
Good luck with your trees, hopefully you will continue to have enough water for them to flourish.
Glad you got your visas without problems.
