love mangoes. It was when I was a high school student that I ate this tropical fruit for the first time in my life. I remember how I was happy to taste it and I wondered about tropical islands far away where this fruit is grown. In Japan, you know, foreign fruits like mangoes are very expensive because of its high tariff. A mango is priced at about 200 yen which is about 1 Canadian dollar(85 yen) in Canada and less than 10 peso(20 yen) in the Philippines. I can't believe this value difference! Anyway I like this fruit because of its taste, smell and feel. Only one thing that I don't like about it is the large seed. I wish there were seedless mangoes.
