New Year Mangoes!

Once again the Blog has been on the backburner for a while - it's been a very busy couple of months at Daintree Valley Haven ... and we just cannot believe that another year is down the gurgler!

After a very poor year for fruit last year - everything was out of kilter with the extreme weather patterns - at last we have a wonderful crop of mangoes, our most favourite fruit of all.  They are R2E2 variety and as you can see are enormous with a delicious soft sweet flesh.

And after not a single rambutan last year now all our trees are loaded with still-green fruit, which we hope the birds and flying foxes will leave alone for a while as they have to ripen on the tree.  Same for the carambolas and yellow passionfruit which are also ripening.
