They are huge and really delicious. Quite a bit bigger than the more common red mangoes. At least the ones I've had were a lot bigger.

E: If the "winter" was longer and cooler it could get a D, but as it stands, there's very little relief from the heat.

I'll give Palm Desert an A, with a caveat... When summer blazes in the desert, it's just a short drive up a gorgeous highway to Idyllwild... 20 to 30 degrees cooler, 45 minutes away, and it makes the desert tolerable. PD has the best fall/winter/spring climate in the nation IMHO, but let's be real - it is nowhere near the ocean, so it doesn't have that famous "consistent spring" that San Diego has. Still, the desert has a unique, beautiful climate.

So hot in summer as to be bearable for three to five months at best. Itís shorts all year round and that can be hot for me. If I could flee from the hot weather I wouldnít mind living there, but otherwise itís as bad as any hot desert.

I would dream of a delightful, cool climate like Crescent City or Eureka if living there, though biologically the contrast is fascinating and I know it from reading all the scholarly papers. Like Australiaís deserts, unless I was a biologist Iíd stay out.

D- for being WAY too hot in summer and too dry year round. Winters are pleasant though.
