QUEENLY FRUIT

Where Oahu - - WHERE NOW -

Slice it. Mix it. Dice it. The mango is a ver­sa­tile fruit that chefs and mixol­o­gists will in­cor­po­rate into their recipes dur­ing the sum­mer months. Not na­tive to Hawai‘i, the mango found its way to the is­lands via ship. In Hawai­ian An­nual and Al­manac for

1909, Thomas G. Thrum writes that Cap­tain John Meek of the brig Kame­hameha brought the first mango trees to Honolulu from Manila in 1824. Since then, lo­cal grow­ers have in­tro­duced sev­eral new va­ri­eties, in­clud­ing Hadens, Piries and Gou­veias.
