What Fruits & Veggies are in Season on Kauai

What Fruit and Vegetables to Look for this Season on Kauai

Kauai is known for its astonishing ability to grow and harvest produce all year round. Of course this comes as no surprise with its warm weather and sunny tropical climate. As many of our local chefs and farmers can tell you, Kauai is the ideal place to grow. As winter begins to fade away (what little “winter” we did have) we welcome the buds, blossoms and breath of fresh air that is spring time.

It is rather easy to figure out which vegetables and fruits are in season. Simply visit one of our many weekly farmer’s markets to see firsthand which crops are producing the freshest and most delicious produce. Of course, you can always count on The Farm at Kukuiula to offer a bountiful harvest.

Below are what fruits and vegetables to look for this spring (and for a more in depth look at some of our specialty species take a look at 10 Hawaiian Fruits You’ve Never Heard Of).  If no dates provided below, that item is available year round. Lucky us!
