More about this activity
Hāliʻimaile is a small rural town on the slopes of Haleakala. Its name loosely translates to an area covered in fragrant vegetation. That vegetation was once the Maile shrub but as of the 1920s it has been home to the sweet smell of pineapples. The building from the 20s still remain and are still partially in use for current production of Maui Gold pineapples on Maui.
As you may or may not have known pineapples grow on a plant in the ground. They can take up to 3 years to produce a single fruit, however they can keep producing fruit for up to 50 years. The climate of Maui is perfect for growing pineapples and so it became big industry across the islands. At one point Hawaii was producing 80% of the world’s pineapples! The taste of a fresh pineapple is unforgettable and it is loaded with nutrients making it good for you as well. The aloha spirit is alive in these tropical fruits and you can feel it when you take this pineapple farm tour. The guides are amazing, experienced and will definitely show you a good time. If you’ve ever wondered where a pineapple came from you will find that and so much more on this Maui pineapple farm tour.
