Interested in learning to graft your own mango varieties? Now's your chance! The Oahu chapter of the Hawaii Tropical Fruit Growers (HTFG) will be focusing on grafting together at our second 2018 meeting. We'll be generously hosted by Mark Suiso at Makaha Mangoes, and will also be enjoying a farm tour.
Please bring your own potted rootstock (avocado or mango), or you can buy one from us for $5. We'll learn to collect mango scions, and will get a quick lesson in grafting technique, then we will help each other graft, workshop style. I know we have a lot of knowledge out there - please come ready to make new fruity friends and share your grafting know-how with each other.
Please bring if you can:
Workshop is free for current Oahu HTFG members, $5 for everyone else.

Even though it was a tough season for mangoes on Oahu, we had great co-op farmer connections come through for us and still had enough great mangoes to supplement our offerings. We had pickled and cut mango for sale, along with plenty whole mango to take home. We also had a our signature logo items for sale too. The chefs and bartenders delivered as usual, with wonderful, unique, mango themed dishes and drinks. It was amazing!
