Mango Mania in India. The NYTimes on mango season in India (March through May). The best news of all: the U.S. ban on Indian mangoes will soon be lifted. Sweet!
The Indian wing of DHL even offers a courier service specifically for mangoes, although the United States
has long been absent from its list of destinations because of its ban
on Indian mangoes. But the ban should soon be lifted as part of a deal
struck by President Bush on his March visit to the country, which will
also give India easier access to nuclear technology. Quid pro quo, as
far as many Indians are concerned. "The U.S. is looking forward to
eating Indian mangoes," he said at a press conference, cheering up a
local press that he had earlier disappointed by not seeming too
well-versed about cricket and Bollywood, two other Indian passions.
