Whether it be 1926 or 2020, receiving a gift of pickled mangoes is a precious thing.
[Found under: “NU HOU KULOKO: Oahu.”]
Mango Fruit.—The past days, and these days as well, a lot [makena wale] of this delicious fruit is seen often at the markets and on the street sides of this town, but other fruits are very rare. We have seen thirty or more or less being sold for an eighth of a dollar [hapawalu], but it was not so recently when there wasn’t any; at that time at the Chinese stores it was six or ten for an eighth of a dollar. Those who crave mango are saved these days, and the adults and children peel them as they walk about the streets; and much is the diarrhea.
