The commencement of summer in Baja California is signified by the ripening of the antioxidant-rich mango. Sweet and tangy, the substantial fruit of the mango is a Baja delight. During the months of June, July and August mango trees, like those surrounding Costa Palmas, become weighed down by the ripening fruit, ranging in size from the size of a child’s hand to that of an adult. This versatile fruit can be eaten alone, in salads or with chili or ceviche. You’ll often see it served beach-side, peeled and on a stick and sprinkled with a chili spice, like Tajin.
