Nowadays I notice that my friends have this craze for buying branded mangoes from Perlis. Harumanis and Sala are two such species of mangoes that are most sought after.
Back in Ipoh, I saw this lorry load of mangoes near my favourite eating place in Canning Garden. The traders told me that they were selling Perlis mangoes but these were hybrids. The mangoes were being sold at RM10 for 3kilogrammes.
