Mangoes-an update

HERE  they are-the mangoes. They have grown a little more. In few days time we are celebrating our New Year. We make a special chutney using mangoes , jaggery, neem flowers etc . 

They would be sour and a little bitter since they are not fully grown. At this stage either due to birds or due to winds some the weak fruits fall down. But as children we were looking out for any such fallen fruit. We use to cut them into pieces and eat it with salt and  chilli powder. They are also made into pickles -a temporary pickle as they don't keep for long. Once the fruit are full grown in a month or so we pickle them which keep year or two.
