Last week, we saw the first apricots of the season arrive at Mana Foods and this week brings us more firsts.
Check out the local watermelons from Ululani Farms, a 50 acre Mango, Papaya and Watermelon Farm on the island of Moloka'i. We have 2 varieties, the sugar babies are smaller, rounder with a very dark green skin. The Crimson Sweets are oblong and have a lighter variegated skin.
Also, cherries! Brooks Cherries are an early variety with a large fruit, similar to Bing. They have a dark color and its flavor is sweet, rich and well-balanced. It's flesh is firm and crisp with luscious shades of red and pink. It used to be that early variety cherries were always a bit tart and tangy, but not anymore!
This week, we are getting red and green grapes too. Whooot! Summer is coming!
