WE LOVE MANGOS!
Summertime is St. Croix’s mango season, kicking off with Mango Melee at the St. George Village Botanical Garden. And though we’re shifting into Fall now, there are still some mango trees producing the delicious fruit.
There are more than 300 varieties of mangos worldwide and you can find quite a few here on St. Croix. And, not to rub it in too much, statesiders, but you just haven’t had a mango until you’ve had one fresh from the tree. They’re just so juicy and flavorful!
During mango season, you can find mangos at the farmer’s markets, roadside produce stands, and many grocery stores even sell locally grown mangos. Several restaurants will feature mangos on their savory dishes and in their desserts.
Celebrating 30 Years
In celebration of Centerline’s 30th anniversary, we’re sharing 30 Things Centerline Loves About St. Croix. Each week we’ll share something new — and we hope you’ll chime in on social media by telling us what you love too! Our big 3-0 is in March 2020, when we’ll also be giving away a St. Croix vacation.
