Mango bloom one mile from my house.

This tree is next to an avocado tree that is propped up after the hurricane hit it. The mango tree was not affected. Also my guarana a few days ago.

Nice blooms onthat one part of the mango tree. I’ve never seen guarana before, do you make a drink with it? There’s caffeine in the plant IIRC.

Lol, looked at the pictures before reading your description.  I was trying to figure out the words for how to break it to you that those were guaranį and that mangoes look nothing like that  ;)

AFAIK, they're processed just like coffee.  Remove the skin, thoroughly dry, dry roast (but don't burn), and grind in a coffee grinder.  If there's another way to eat it, I don't know about it.

I have bought guarana seed and ground it up in a Krupp's grinder. Did not bother roasting it. You simmer it in water and its about as strong as coffee. Black coffee tastes better but guarana's caffeine stimulation is smoother.

You use as much guarana powder as coffee.
To experiment w guarana buy 4-8oz on ebay. Amazon might be reasonable too? Guarana capsules are a total rip-off.
