8/16/99

Here at TREC our mango collection has 109 cultivars and for the last three months I've spent nearly every morning photographing them.  It's been a huge part of this project and the final tally is in.  I have as of this week 89 mango cultivars photographed hanging from the tree and also halved back in the lab.  Hopefully I'll be able to find a few more before October but I am very happy with what I have accomplished.  The different mango cultivars can be amazingly diverse in shape, color, size, and taste and the experience of photographing 89 varieties has had endless reward.
