Mangos

Sunil's panegyric to mangoscauses me to post this photograph from a few weeks ago, of a mango tree, peeking above the second storey roof of my parents' home.

That's so pretty. I've never seen a mango tree.

And the amzing thing about globalisation is that I, living in the Highlands of Scotland, can buy mangoes from a van that comes to my gate. Most weeks anyhow.

And the amazing thing about global warming is that eventually you'll be able to grow tropical mango trees in the Highlands of Scotland. (Or maybe genetic engineering will impart resistance to freezing to a mango-like tree?)

Thanks! I might order one. I'm growing a lemon tree. It hasn't borne fruit yet, but my dad has some older ones that have. We have to bring them indoors in the winter here in TN. I guess a mango tree would be similar.
