A pile of sweet delicious mango are stacked for display at the Hanalei Farmer’s Market on the island of Kaua’i. Feel free to adjust your monitor, but they really are that big. It is mango season in Hawaii!
Like avocado, lime, lychee, and a few other fruits grown here, mango in Hawaii can grow to gargantuan sizes while retaining all of their tasty qualities. Also like other fruits, they can be found growing on farms, in yards, or on the side of the road free for the picking.
For some of us, it is hard to visit other farmer’s markets in the world without making comparisons to the fruit we know and love on the islands.
