#Sindhri is a wonderfully sweet mango: a real treat that is not to be missed during its short season. These aromatic Mangoes are the national fruit of Pakistan with such knock-your-socks-off incredible sweetness and taste. Can't wait to have this flavoursome fruit in my mouth♥️ https://t.co/teNguzWM5m
