Live to Die for Love of Mango 

Subba Rao 

The relation between mango and Indians goes back to thousands 

of years. Mango is native to India from there it spread worldwide 

wherever the climate suits its growth. Every mango growing country 

boasts having the best quality mango on its soil.  Trinidad and Jamaica 

have Julie mango; India has several verities' each known for a 

particular characteristic such as for sweet juice, flavor, and flesh 

without fiber and so on. 

On the Big Island of Hawaii, the mangoes are superb in taste 

and quality as good as or better than Indian mangoes and this coming 

from a person tasted many varieties of mangoes from Indian and the 

Caribbean. Mangoes were brought into Hawaiian Islands from all over the 

world; Florida on the mainland USA, Philippines, South America, 

Caribbean and other regions from late 1700's by Christian missionaries, 

ship crew and private citizens. From these imported varieties, the 

local research station developed varieties to suit local climatic 

conditions.  Mangoes from trees that grow on roadside and marginal 

lands are small and fibrous with a turpentine odor.  Varieties such as 

Gouveria, Pope, Keitt and Momi K grown in farms have excellent fruit 

quality in terms of juice and flesh.  There are other good mango 

varieties sold in the farmers' market.  At 3 dollars a pound, every 

cent is worth for its quality and taste.  One don't have to travel to 

India for good mango, Hawaii has best varieties too.  I am enjoying it.
