It’s a fruit from warm climate
odd shaped I’ll  agree.
Smooth texture outside
and inside you’ll see.

The trees it does grow on
are prolific in Key West.
The chefs here know
how to use it the best.

On crab cakes I love it
or on the salad with greens.
You see it all over
it makes all the scenes.

Caribbean climes
it’s primarily from.
It’s sweet on the buds
your tummy will hum.

It’s chutnied and chopped
on your fish or in soup.
Whatever your choice,
please stay in the loop.

It tweaks the senses
it’s juicy and fresh.
On so many dishes
guaranteed it will mesh.

I love the mango
so unique you will see.
It grows everywhere here
for all intent it is free.

Doug Heyman, Key West, Florida
