Tropical Gardening: Celebrate Thanksgiving wherever you are


The durian is a popular fruit of Vietnam and much of tropical Southeast Asia. In Hawaii, in spite of its unique taste, it is one of the newer fruits and bringing top dollar to local farmers. Each fruit can sell for as much as $25.

As we wander throughout Vietnam, our family back home is gathering at the Kona Cloud Forest Sanctuary to celebrate Thanksgiving. Being here really makes one aware of how blessed we are in Hawaii.
