Ordering mangoes online is a maddening experience!
« on: July 10, 2020, 01:34:58 PM »
 I live 3 hour drive from mango Central in South Florida so I only order mango when I'm going down to pick up a mango tree variety that is not available up here. With dumb luck I got lucky in the beginning of June around 6:30 at night and got a mixed bag and a drop bag but since then no such luck. I have tried with two different vendors that are fairly close to each other.One i was told started at 4 p.m. after being up before day light working all day at 3:58 pm hit my refresh button every minute till 7 pm at night until my eyeballs fell out and I passed out. Today I took off from work because Saturday tomorrow  I'm going to two different vendors to pick up 15 gallon fruit punch and a 7 gallon dwarf Hawaiian. Waking up at 7:00 am hitting my refresh button till about 10:30 when I got a phone call from a buddy to pick up a live trap or squirrel condominium in the back of his truck. I was gone no more than 30 minutes and while i was gone that I wanted ice cream plus others were completely sold out. So other than posting on this forum and playing with the grandbaby  I have not been productive yet no mangoes. To make it even more maddening a squirrel keeps going in front of my window showing me his backside and waving his tail. So what I am hoping for is a red tail hawk to snatch the squirrel and for me to get lucky before dark and score some mangoes :)

At 2:43 pm had a mix bag of mango in the queue put in all my info and hit purchase and was give message that quantity not available! I only asked for quantity #1
