Mango fruit is one of if not the most loved fruits in the Philippines; it is also the desired fruit to foreigners. My kids would request me to make graham–mango shortcake every mango season when they were young.

Recently, because of the technological advancement in agriculture, farmers can produce mangoes all year round. But the sweetest ones are those picked in season.

I grew up in a province, south of Manila. We had a big yard. There were many fruit-bearing trees; the mango tree was the star. My siblings and I would climb those trees and pick some fruits and eat them right away. I would say that I am not a novice in tree climbing.

Last summer, I was able to gather a lot of mangoes. Those mangoes belong to my neighbour. Do you wonder why I picked them even though those fruits are not mine?
They planted the mango tree very near my house fence 20 years ago. When the mango tree grew, some of its branches hang over the property line. Its fruits almost touched the roof of my house. Many of the fruits even fell onto the roof of my house every day.
I was a bit reluctant to gather those fruits at first. However, I got to know about the law regarding the overhanging tree branches. So, without hesitation, I climbed the fence and reached for the bunches of big and ripe mangoes. My family was so surprised when they learned about what I did. On the other hand, they praised me for my venturous act.

There is local legislation in place, and it states that it is the tree owner’s responsibility to manage that tree. However, if there is a branch overhanging onto your side, you do have a right to deal with the impact that tree branch might have on your property. It gives you the legal right to remove branches and if be it the fruit that is attached to the limbs.
In my understanding, I have all the right to cut or trim the branches that overhang my fence, which includes picking the fruits on those branches.

It was the best mango season ever for my family!
