At first bite I knew it was something special, this little mango with red and yellow highlights. The flavor was off the charts, a combination of berry and spice and the deep sweetness of the tropical sun. I learned that it was from Hawaii, selected decades ago upon the lava shores of our 50th state. And now I travel to Hawaii to learn first hand about the island and its people, the agriculture and hopefully their passion for the mango. I travel with Leila Wailani Werner, our own native Hawaiian, who will bring a local flavor and insight to my trip.
So, aloha and thanks for your continuing support of our travels and quest to capture the Love of Mangos in lands from near and far.
