The Philippines Has 10 Million Extra Mangoes After Heat Wave

Thanks to an unseasonably warm stretch earlier this spring, farms in the Philippines are loaded with 10 million extra mangoes — and they aren’t quite sure what to do with them all. According to a report from Insider, the overly warm weather has caused a bumper crop, with mangoes growing into market-ready condition at a rate far faster than farmers and vendors can handle. The bulk of the problem is taking place on Luzon, the country’s most populous island.
