Before the first rooster wakes and greets the day with the music of his crow, prior to the first glimmer of the suns beams over Haleakala and just ahead of the bustling traffic headed over the Pali, Maui’s farmers have their hands in the rich soil tending to the crops of the island.
The harvest is a rainbow of abundance. From the deepest hues of purple eggplant to the sun kissed gold of Maui’s pineapples and the deep rain forest green of the avocados still glistening with the morning dew as they peak out just below the leaves of the tree they grow on, the array of flavor that awaits you is beyond imaginable.
Dragon fruit & coconut are crops that are not only abundant on Maui but intriguing as well. From the bright pink glow of the dragon fruit to the stark white meat of the coconut, your taste buds are in for a spectacular treat. The taste of a crisp & sweet Maui onion from the local farm stand can not be replicated. Papaya that yields such a sweetness and flavor that you need nothing but a spoon to enjoy. Farm fresh lavender that can be used in baking, cooking and health & wellness is at your fingertips. Strawberries, bananas, corn, sugar cane, mango……. a cornucopia of splendor and richness grows on this beautiful island.
The cultivation of crops yielded on Maui brings an array of adventures in dining only explainable after experiencing. Stop at that roadside farm stand, visit the Saturday farmers market, check out the local produce at the grocery store, head to an island farm to gather the fixings for a nutritious & colorful dinner. You will leave not only with a basket of the islands goodness, you will meet and talk story with local families and farmers. You will be supporting local. You will be nourishing your body and your soul as well.
