On the spotlight today is a delicious mango specie called Peter; large, succulent, fibrous mango with a rich and creamy taste that feels just right to the palates.

I was in Abuja recently for work and while I was there, I had the opportunity to constantly make use of this mango for varieties of smoothies and I must confess that I have in fact fallen in love with Peter!

This undoubtedly, is the most luscious mango I have ever tasted; it is fleshy, juicy, and sweet and it gives smoothies a rich and creamy thickness that makes them really enjoyable. No matter the fruit combinations you have in your smoothie, Peter will always stand out, either by hijacking the colour of the smoothie or increasing the overall thickness and taste.

Mangoes ( Mangifera Indica) also known as ‘the king of fruits ’are tropical stone fruits (drupes) which belong to the same Anacardiaceae family as cashews, olives, dates and pistachios. Mangoes are the most widely consumed fruits in the world and they are native to southern Asia, specifically in Bangladesh, India and Pakistan where they were cultivated in varieties before they were then brought into Africa in the 16th century by Portuguese merchants.
