Nothing says summer in Queensland more than a ripe mango shoved greedily into your face. Manhandling this particularly juicy fruit may not be very lady-like, but damn do they taste good!

But what this all means for us is that the mango season is back baby! Bring on mango smoothies, mango ice cream and just plain delicious mangoes.
