Last April 15, 2012, i was there in the Island of Guimaras during the opening of Manggahan Festival 2012. The Manggahan Festival is celebrated by the Guimarasnons to promote the Mango Industry.
Guimaras Island is the home of the sweetest mango in the world. Guimaras Mangoes are exported around the world and is reportedly served at the White House and Buckingham Palace.
Every time i go to Guimaras to visit my parents, i never missed to buy mangoes. I like the unique sweetness, firm flesh, sweet-smelling aroma, thin seeds as well as smooth peel. This year, in the Manggahan Festival, Guimaras Mangoes are sold from Php60 – Php70 per kilo. If you want to experience the Mango Eat All You Can, visit the Manggahan Festival from April 17-22 at the capitol grounds.
