The Guimaras mango festival will continue until May 22.

Within the prescribed time, visitors can choose whether they want to eat ripe or green mangoes. They can also pair the ripe mangoes with “ibus” or sticky rice, or eat the green mangoes with “bagoong” or shrimp paste.

The event has been part of the festival for 15 years now, according to the Provincial Agricultural Services Office (PASO).

In last year’s festival, PASO recorded a total of 4,429 “mango eaters” in a period of nine days.

Guimaras mango is distinct for its sweet-sour taste, less fibrous pulp, and thinner skin or epicarp. It is also certified weevil-free.
