When people think of Hawaii, images of island scenery, hula dancers, and tropical fruits come to mind. While they are not native to Hawaii, Hawaii mangos are a prized commodity to both locals are visitors alike. People with fruiting trees share with friends and neighbors, exemplifying the local culture. Mango wood is naturally a creamy off white color, but the sugars in the tree sometimes cause spots of yellow, pink, or black.
Like the fruit tastes, mango ukulele sound bold and sweet. Since it’s not a native tree, there are no mango forests and the lumber is only available when a tree needs to be trimmed or cut down. All of KoAloha’s Mango series instruments are produced in Kaka’ako.
