"When I was growing up, nearly every backyard had a mango tree, and in it's shade you were always 10 degrees cooler on a hot day. My dad invented mango pickers, and every season, came up with a "new and improved" model. When I was pregnant, I craved Bowen Mangoes, and we'd buy boxes of them at the stall on the side of the road. Every year, my grandma still makes the best mango chutney you've ever tasted...Mango trees remind me of home". Billie Jo Obst
