Last year was a bit sad my neighbour wanted me to lop off branches of our beloved mango tree that were over their roof. It turned out that over 40% of the tree had to go - painful to see it like that but the good tree bore it all. Slowly the stumps grew shoots and well it regained strength.
|All set for ripening!|
And wonder of wonders - it bore no grudge and gave splendid mangoes again this year. Vasu was away so I got Rajesh to pluck some.
Turns out there were over a 100 (as compared to the 500-600 we got last year). Any way we ripened them and here they are - ready to eat.
|Ready to eat - sweet!|
Sweet, sweet pedda rasalu. As always we have Mom to thank for her foresight in planting this tree almost 50 years ago. Thanks Mom. And thanks tree!
