Maui's Bounty

How lucky am I? Bruce picked these up in Lahaina yesterday - delicious Hayden mangoes!

These beauties will be in season until about August, then dwindle away. The trick is finding someone on the Lahaina or Kihei side of the island (where they thrive in the dry heat) who is willing to sell them.

It doesn't look like it will be a very big crop this year, so they will probably be hard to come by. We will enjoy what we can get.

One of these went into dinner - mango black bean chicken salad from the Best Life Diet book by Bob Greene. Yum!

I'd try that little farmer's market north of Lahaina in the little plaza with Bad Ass Coffee (across from Honokawai). They look yummy!

I absolutely love mangoes.
Funny how many different kinds there are....
