Days like this, I wish I had a back yard to pick some mangoes, french cashews, plums, or even cut some callaloo to make a soup!!! Well I realize sometimes you have to, as my mother would say, "MAKE DO!" lol. Do some research of your neighborhood, find the spots where you can buy your provisions/fruits and indulge them, it's healthy and just sweetens yuh memory of home! My favorite spot is La Bay Market on Nostrand Avenue! Check out the article below for amazing benefits of mango!

Mango is considered the king of fruits because of its unlimited nutritional and medicinal properties. In Latin language, it is called Mangifera indica. If we burn the wood of a mango tree in our neighborhood, it keeps germs and bacteria at bay. For the same reason, it is also used in havans (religious Hindu bonfire ritual).
The leaves of mango are believed to be sacred and used in religious and social rituals. Mango is considered good from taste and health point of view. Mango also works as a blood booster and sperm booster. It is full of richness of vitamins A and C. It is especially beneficial for skin and eyes.
