Maui Grows Pineapples

Once accounting for 80 percent of worldwide production, Hawai‘i-grown pineapples are increasingly grown on small farms across Maui. This heritage-crop bromeliad is celebrated in many cultures as a symbol of hospitality; it is the islands’ gift of aloha.


Maui Grows Herbs

Often inconspicuous and small, huge with flavor and fragrance, herbs add the finishing touch to Maui’s famed regional cuisine. Maui lavender, lemon grass, basil, ginger root and cilantro form just a small bouquet in this critical niche industry.

From golden-red mangoes to flavorful persimmons and blushing lychees, even raspberries, strawberries, and figs, Maui fruits sweeten the market. Freshly picked, local fruits are healthier and tastier than imported fruits or fruit sodas.

Maui aquaculture adapts old Hawaiian practices to modern needs and high-tech opportunities. Without depleting wild resources, commercial aquafarms are increasingly important.
