Sweet as Ataulfo Honey

When I first heard someone say “Ataulfo,” I nearly said “Gesundheit!” The Ataulfo mango is sometimes referred to as the “champagne mango.” And it makes me think of that line from the Van Morrison song: “She’s as sweet as Tupelo honey,” except I sing it as: “She’s as sweet as Ataulfo honey-mango.” It generally annoys everyone in the vicinity of my voice. Nonetheless, this mango is sweet like a love song.

Pixies and the Full Moon Fairy

Springtime mandarin season makes me think of the Full Moon Fairy. I first heard about her when my daughter came home from kindergarten and announced that a fairy would be visiting us—every full moon. Ah, another late-night visitor to add to the guest list. I was already pressed to remember to leave the gate unlatched for Mr. Claus, the Tooth Fairy, the Easter Bunny, assorted leprechauns, and now the Full Moon Fairy.

A Tangerine in Every Toe!

Winter is a citrus carnival at The FruitGuys. Every region has boxes brimming with bright orange citrus. Throughout the season, we'll see navels, blood oranges, Cara Caras, grapefruit, and myriad mandarins, including satsumas, clementines, Daisies, Dancys, Murcotts, pixie tangerines, and more. Our fruit buyers travel to the southern tips of their regions where the winter sunshine is ripening the fruit.
