    G.I.Joe Mango Book Project

    G.I.Joe Mango Book Project

    I will be writing a book on mangoes from their sapling days to the disposal of the seed. It will be my own personal perspective, thoughts and analysis on mangoes. I believe I can have enough material for a salad book.

    For the book, I would be needing help from fellow cw members on small details and some small questions I might have which I might forget. So could some of you willing to help drop me an email at g.i.joemango @ gmail.com to confirm?

    It is to be done over a period of 2-3 years or so by the time a dozen crates are consumed, so we have enough time. If I can devote myself to consuming (and I have some 100 crates from the past 30 years apart from some preserves to dip my sticky fingers into) and suck on even 10 seeds a month or get ideas streamlined and then strain a crateful of pulp in one shot who knows how it will flow. :naugh...

    10 mangoes a day and the tasty process it would entail makes me think that we can have a nice 350-400 bottle preserve here if we get the contents ready.

    This is just a rough figure. It could be less or more.

    So give me a few suggestions and wish me luck in getting my hands sticky writing this book. This is a book I really feel like writing.

    Cheers.

    Athlai doesn't lie. And he doesn't do sarcasm either, so you know it's true!

    Are you sure you wanna do this when the mango's career is not over yet?
    We miss you, Fardin. :(. RIP.

    As the first person to bring back the Mango into the sunlight I believe I could provide some assistance.

    BTW, If you plan do devote a chapter to the competition, I've got some good oil on Tendulkar's capricious affair with that pineapple

    Over 0.2: Putland to Nevill, OUT, no run, full ball swings in late to crash into his pads. Nevill is almost falling over trying to get bat on it but can't. Huge shout for LBW and Umpire Martell eventually raises the finger! P.Nevill - lbw b:Putland 0 (1 ball, 1 minute).

    And you claimed not too long ago that you choked after eating 175 mangoes chasing a 300+ target . You have been gloating as if you have something to do with the mangoes success and going after everyone that ever said anything about a mango.

    When you write your Book, please do mention what you said after that 175 mango eating session. I am sure it will be a NY Times best seller.

    I hope you don't approach the book in a strictly chronological fashion. If you do, I'm not going anywhere near this one, even if I read reviews of it online.

    Fantastic thread.

    Good luck GI Joe. Firstly you are trying to squeeze in the history of a fruit which dates back to Alexander's days and secondly you are trying to condense the tastes of a billion plus into one book.
