Hooray for Captain Haden
The African explorer
`Did someone call me schnorrer?'
Hooray Hooray Hooray!
At the turn of the century Florida's Captain Haden planted 12 Mulgoba mango seeds from India. It took eight years for the trees to fruit. The Captain died, never tosee the resulting beautiful rainbow colored mango that would go on to be 90% of Florida's mango crops. Like Groucho says: "Time flies like an arrow. Fruit flies like a banana." There are many ways to cut a mango. Secure with a fork and peel, or check out our tips for how to cut a mango here.
