|Adi-lila||Chapter 17: The Pastimes of Lord Caitanya Mahaprabhu in His Youth|
Bhaktivedanta VedaBase: Sri Caitanya Caritamrta Adi 17.83
rakta-pita-varna, -- nahi asthi-valkala
eka janera peta bhare khaile eka phala
rakta-pita-varna -- the mangoes were red and yellow in color; nahi -- there was none; asthi -- seed; valkala -- or skin; eka -- one; janera -- man's; peta -- belly; bhare -- filled up; khaile -- if he would eat; eka -- one; phala -- fruit.
The fruits were all red and yellow, with no seed inside and no skin outside, and eating one fruit would immediately fill a man's belly.
In India a mango is considered best when it is red and yellow, its seed is very small, its skin is very thin, and it is so palatable that if a person eats one fruit he will be satisfied. The mango is considered the king of all fruits.
