9 years ago Matthew McConaughey and his wife Camila Alves had their first child — the son of Levi. Then the actor heard the custom of the aborigines fertilizing fruit trees with the placenta.
The happy father did the same, planting a mango tree in the courtyard of the house and fertilizing it with the placenta of their firstborn. And now, years later, the plant finally bore fruit. According to McConaughey, it was the most delicious mango in his life.
“One of the best mangoes I’ve ever eaten in my life. This mango tree bore its first fruit after nine years. The whole family sat down, ate it, and celebrated my son’s birthday,” the actor shared on a TV show.
