It's the smell of summer - a ripe mango dripping with juicy goodness.
And it's about to make a return to the Slow Food Earth Market Maitland in the name of community service.
That's right, another mango crop needs rescuing and the city is up for the challenge.
Mango smoothies, ice cream, tarts - or cut into squares and take a bite. However you like them there is going to be plenty on offer in The Levee on Thursday, December 3 from 8.30am.
The rescue is a saviour for North Queensland farmers Bruce and Helen Hill who have once again faced the possibility of their crop rotting due to a lack of buyers.
Their usual market has become cluttered with mangoes - they all seem to ripen at the same time - and there aren't enough buyers to enjoy them.
Thankfully Slow Food Hunter Valley has stepped in again to help so the fruit won't go to waste.
About 50 boxes of mangoes - equivalent to around half a tonne - will arrive just before the market.
Slow Food Earth Market Maitland chairwoman Amorelle Dempster thinks they will sell quickly.

"We will have half the quantity we would normally have as the trees haven't produced as much as they normally do. That's due to a range of environmental factors," she said.
This is the fourth consecutive year the market has reached out to support the couple.
The mangoes are organic and biodynamic. The Hill's will be paid a fair price for their fruit, which is one of Slow Food's overarching principles.
"We know that Maitland loves mangoes and they taste so much better when they are fresh and organic and biodynamic," Ms Dempster said.
"Bruce and Helen have put a lot of work into getting the crop to the point of harvest and there is a lot of work involved with harvesting the crop, so we want to make sure it is not wasted."
