Twelve years ago we planted over 250 sprouted coconuts that have now become fully mature fruit bearing trees. Maui’s climate hosts some of the most ideal growing conditions for coconut trees in the world with over 300 days of sunshine annually. Coconut trees produce fruit continuously year-round and these conditions bless our farm with a potential yield of over 10,000 nuts per year.

In addition to the coconut trees, we propagate many native tropical plants and fruits. Bananas, papayas, avocados, mangos, pineapples, and sugar cane are just some varieties that thrive across the property as well as an exotic citrus orchard.”

FAQ-

Will I get to climb a coconut tree?
There is only one way to harvest coconuts and that is to shimmy your way up to the top and claim your bounty. That being said, no, sorry. We will be doing all the climbing, but don’t worry the coconuts taste just as good on the ground.

What time of year are coconuts in season?
Now! A mature coconut tree flowers continuously throughout the year with the potential to produce hundreds of coconuts. There is always a fresh harvest to be found.

Is it possible to take coconuts back home on the plane?
Yes, it’s not a hassle at all. Just be sure to declare them when you arrive at the airport and a quick inspection will clear them for travel.
