It's finally that time of the month. Harvest time has come and the first day produced 40 kaings (traditional fruits baskets) of green mangoes. This will then be treated so the sap is removed from the skin (para flawless!) and extend shelf life. The fruits will ripen six to seven days from now and will then be ready for the markets. Antipolo mangoes with Antipolo suman, yum!
The mangoes are sorted by size in separate baskets (i.e. small, medium, and large).
The leaves on top of the baskets are tags that mean that the mangoes inside are small. Each basket weighs 22 kilos.
