Mango Melee USVI is the ultimate food party on the first Sunday in July in Frederiksted, St. Croix. Imagine yourself in competition, sitting in front of your own pile of tree-ripened mangos with local music playing in the background. Designed by the agricultural sector and the St. Georges Village Botanical Gardens, this tasting extravaganza is a true gateway into Crucian and VI cuisine. Vendors set up on the grounds of the beautiful botanical gardens and offer everything from mango marinades to mango salsas to mango rum. The chef competition “Mango Dis, Mango Dat” is an eagerly anticipated attraction at the Mango Melee USVI and every year attendees go home to invent their own exotic recipes. Visitors leave the festival with sated appetites, a hefty knowledge about growing their own mango trees, and stunning mangoes they purchase in the final auction.
