Mango Season

In Okinawa, Mango season starts from beginning of July and finishes on August.

When mango season starts, price is bit expensive, around 600-1000 JPN yen with middle- large size of mango. Yes, I know this price is expensive comparing with mango from Taiwan or Philippine.

Normally I buy one or two of middle size Mangoes on July to contribute local farmers and wait until the end of Mango season. Mangoes price goes down, half price or sometimes 100 Yen sale in the end of Mango season. You should check out 'Onnna no Eki'(Onna local farmers market) constantly in the end of Mango season and enjoy Mango.
