    We are in the middle of mango season, which runs from May to September. The mango, which originated in India and can run from 6 ounces to 4 pounds, is one of nature’s most nourishing fruits. Loaded with vitamins A, C and D, fresh mango is delicious eaten alone, or added to sauces, salads, salsas, chutneys, compotes, breads, stir-fry recipes, and more. Many varieties of mango are grown in Hawai’i, and vary in color from red and orange to yellow and green.

    One of the obvious options for going into business that we can see all around us on every street corner is a franchise. Should you buy a franchise or start out with your own business idea? This is a big decision, so we turned to someone who knows a thing or two about the topic to enlighten us.
