19 The Elephant Mango ...erm, really?

My aunt has a mango tree that grows huge mangoes. When I asked what variety it was, elephant mango was the hesitant answer. No one in the family was too sure of its name. Its origins were a shady distant memory.

So, I present to you THE mango! I will refer to it as THE mango until I know it's lovely name.
  
Tadaaa..!

I wish I had taken a photo of the tree. I could have forwarded it to a gardening group for identification but it always slips my mind. I fly home with many photos except the one I want most.

This is what THE mango looks like inside. Juicy, sweet and yummy is how I would describe the taste.

Ripe and Ready!

I took a picture of it on a stool for size comparison.

As wide as my stool

Yeah, baby, yeah

If you know the name, leave a comment below. It would make me very happy.
