About Mango Melee
Every July, Mango Melee is hosted by the St. George Village Botanical Gardens. This popular summer event helps develop a greater appreciation for tropical fruits, especially mangoes, and educates the public about growing these fruits and the many ways they can be used. Mango Melee offers educational workshops as well as fun activities for children and helps raise funds for the programs the Garden presents throughout the year.
‘Mango Dis, Mango Dat’ is a food competition that has been building in popularity over the past few years. Chefs and cooks from around the Virgin Islands are invited to compete. There are four categories in which mangoes must feature prominently: Sips (alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks), Sweets (and desserts), Salsas (and sauces) and Stuff (any miscellaneous foods that don’t fit in the other categories). There are prizes awarded in all categories, and tastes of the winning entries are then available for sale. Contact the Garden for the ‘Mango Dis, Mango Dat’ entry requirements, fees and details.
