Fresh fruit anyone? It’s a-plenty! We loved Hawaii for all of the fresh fruit growing everywhere. This place is so life giving!
Our daily hikes included walls of lush green plants, song birds above singing “Howyadoinalright,” but best of all, snacks!
On every hike, we found all kinds of fruit along the way. No need to pack snacks in Hawaii, just look up. The trees are carrying them.
Coming from dry Colorado, Adam and I were pumped to see so much food growing so easily! Our buddy Lucas showed Adam the ropes of climbing a coconut tree to get the goods and then how to machete the nut to get the milk and meat. Sooo good!
And, we got to help harvest kalo in the loi fields and plant banana trees. My new favorite fruit is the apple banana, oh, and the strawberry guava and the passion fruit! Well, I guess they are all my new favorites!
Talk about paradise, our friends filled their tables, blenders, salad dressings and meals with fruit from their backyards. Sugar cane, fig trees, orange trees, avocado trees, lime trees, coconut trees, papaya, guava, mango, pineapple, and bananas. We could get used to this delicious lifestyle!
