Robert The Mango Man is a carpenter turned tropical fruits dealer. He got the idea while plying his carpentry trade on the fruitful grounds of South Dade. "I was working and saw that these people got all these trees in their backyard that they weren't doin' nothin' with, so I said 'let's make a deal I take the fruit off your hands and whatever sells I'll pay you for and if they don't sell I don't pay.' Turns out it can be very lucrative."

Pictured above is a rambutan, which is native to southeast Asia, but grows just fine in Dade. It's described as lychee-like, but sweeter. Here are some more images of Robert The Mango Man's June bounty.
