By Shane Nelson / June 19, 2015















Mango lovers headed to Oahu this summer may want to consider a July 18 visit to the Moana Surfrider, a Westin Resort & Spa in Waikiki. 











The hotel will hold its 7th annual “Mangoes at the Moana” event from 9 am to 4 pm on the 18th, featuring a busy schedule of mango-related seminars, workshops, cooking demonstrations, a best mango competition, mango cocktail-making contests, and the “Mango Throw Down,” a very popular cooking competition between top island chefs.










The festival offers travelers a great chance to mingle with Hawaii residents and learn more about the delicious fruit, including how to best raise a top-producing mango tree or how to make a proper mango scone. 











They’ll also be an array of locally-made mango products for sale, such as artisanal soap and health care products. 









Travelers not able to join the “Mangoes at the Moana” fun July 18 can still sample a variety of mango offerings at the Moana Surfrider throughout July at the resort’s Veranda and the Beachhouse at the Moana restaurants. 









Mango-inspired dishes like mango chicken sausage, mango bread, mango mousse cake or even mango macaroons and more will be available.

Mangaluru: Vagaries of nature is expected to take a toll on the production of King of Fruits - Mango - in Karnataka this year. A combination of failure of pre-monsoon showers at the flowering and growth stage and spike in temperature in mango growing belt of the state is expected to limit the total production of mango to an estimated 12 lakh tonnes in the current season as against 14 lakh tonnes in the last calendar year.



However, the good news for fruit lovers is that this could see price of mangoes across varieties decrease marginally by 2-3%. This is mainly on account of 'import' of the fruit from other mango-growing states in India, said M Kamalakshi Rajanna, chairperson, Karnataka State Mango Development and Marketing Corporation Ltd.
