  •  regarding plural, both spellings are correct... (0+ / 0-)

    at least according to Dictionary.Com:

    man·go
    [mang-goh]
    noun, plural man·goes, man·gos.

    1. the oblong, sweet fruit of a tropical tree, Mangifera indica,  of the cashew family, eaten ripe, or preserved or pickled.

    So while mangoes is the preferred spelling, mangos is also quite acceptable.

    I could have used mangoes and done a 7-row 4-column puzzle -- but I liked the challenge of creating a 5-row 5-column puzzle better so I went with mangos instead.
