Mangga gedong. Or gedong mango? For me, it is like the perfect fruit. Gedong Gincu is even better. What you call something that is better than perfect? Gincu means lipstick. Gedong Gincu is the reddish gedong mango. Very fragrant, very vibrant in color, extremely luscious, super delicious!
Mango is now in its peak season in Jakarta. Harum Manis, specially, the primadona of the business. But, still mangga gedong is the one I prefer, the one I consider as luxury.
As they are now in season, it brings the price to the lowest in a year. They sell Harum Manis at Rp 10,000 per 3 kilos! This Mangga Gedong Gincu, at Rp 14 thousand something per kilo. Lot cheaper than the normal price, which could reach twice as high.
I just can’t help myself bagging these babies like crazy this morning. Now two of them had settled down in my happy stomach.
Happy mango season 🙂
