Enjoying Local Bounty — Pineapples

Ask people what “Hawaii” brings to mind, and “palm trees”, “ocean”, “coconuts”, and “pineapples” probably will be among the terms mentioned.  At our Kaua’i condos on the Coconut Coast of Kaua’i, you can enjoy the trade winds rustling the palm fronds as you gaze at the endless blue ocean.

What about pineapples?

First, some background information — Most Hawaiian pineapples are grown on the islands of Lanai, Maui, and Oahu, and most of these pineapples are headed to the cannery to make chunks, rings, and crushed pineapple for supermarkets.

But all is not lost!  Kaua’i has a small number of farmers who grow pineapples for immediate consumption.  The pineapple most grown is the white pineapple, which is generally not shipped to the mainland and can only be enjoyed fresh on island.

You can find locally grown Kaua’i pineapples at many farmers’ markets on island from mid-June to September, although some local growers have developed a technique to ensure year-round supply of fresh pineapples. When you stay at one of our Kaua’i condos, you can walk over to the Coconut MarketPlace and its weekly farmers’ market and pick up a fresh Kaua’i pineapple.  Kaua’i is noted for having at least one farmers’ market every day of the week somewhere on island, and our central location makes it easy to get to one.  Nothing, absolutely nothing, compares to a fresh pineapple and you must try one when you are on island.

Take that fresh pineapple back to your condo, slice, and sit on the lanai, watching waves or swaying palm trees, and enjoy.

Come, stay with Hula Now at one of our affordable luxury Kauai vacation rentals!

Wishing you a warm Aloha.
