If you want to see where the majority of the pineapples are grown on Maui, make sure to take a Maui Pineapple Tour. This exclusive tour takes you to the pineapple fields on the island and lets you see them in various stages of growth. Here is what you can enjoy with a Maui Pineapple Tour:
The Freshest Pineapples in Hawaii
Just seeing the pineapples is half the fun when you book a Maui Pineapple Tour. In addition to exploring the pineapple fields, you and your family can even taste each stage of growth. They are the last commercial pineapple plantation left on Maui and pineapple is only grown in Haliimaile. It’s also the only place in the US where guests will see a working pineapple plantation firsthand. The guests see the planting of pineapple, harvesting of pineapple, stages of growth, tour the factory, etc. The plantation has been around for 100+ years and these workers have been planting pineapple for generations. They are famous for the ‘Maui Gold’ pineapple which was developed in the 70s as the freshest tasting pineapple – low acidity, extra sweet, etc. The Maui Gold is why most tourists book the tour, you can only get it there, and people remember it for its sweetness. Learn about how these juicy fruits develop their flavors over time. Growing pineapples is just the first part of the game, as local pineapple producers have to worry about climate change and direct marketing. Maui Pineapple Tours will show you how the team uses science to plan around conserving water and prevent the use of harsh chemicals. Once the tour is said and done, you will have the opportunity to purchase some of the freshest pineapples on the island before they have even reached the local markets. All guests on our tour will receive a boxed, airport-ready pineapple to take on the plane with them. The pineapple is all set to carry on the plane and won’t count against the carry-on allowance.
