A new way of harvesting mango?

Most times, we would get our mangoes by either harvesting them from the tree when it looks about to get ripe, or we wait until it falls to the groud. But what if I told you we harvested some of the mangoes by ramming them with a vehicle? Sounds weird? Not really.

If you see the photo below, the mangoes are quite close to the ground, maybe around 5 or 6 feet off the ground. If your vehicle is also at that height, it comes as no surprise that once in a while a mango is a victim of a hit-and-run.

We manage to get a few mangoes this way when they decided to drop off after one too many encounters with the Invader. You can see here why this is so:
