There is no scientific evidence to link a conceiving mother with the premature dropping of fruits, but let us look at it this way. Craving for certain food, such as those rich in Vitamin C - green mango, young sampaloc, kamias, guava and the like - is generally observed among conceiving mothers. It is not unusual to see them in the orchard, holding a bamboo pole or some pieces of stone. Such craving for special foods is a physiologic function of the body, but it may be psychological, too. Old folks interpret it as maternal impression (pinaglihi-an), which is of course an unfounded belief.
A twosome friendly discussion on the topic that maternal impression has something to do witjh premature dropping of fruits, one inability of the tree to fruit in the coming season. Sell, in this particular case the tree (mango) has reached its senite stage.
