Hawaiian fruit is the best! If you missed part one of my series on Hawaiian Fruit, check my post from August 1.
So, did you figure out which of the following fruits are actually native to the islands?
Pineapple, Mango, Guava, Papaya?
The answer is: NONE!!
There is a native fruit, however, that confuses tourists. It’s called Hala and looks very much like a pineapple. In fact, the Hala is often times referred to as Tourist Pineapple because of its mistaken identity.
Next post (on Monday) I’ll start talking about specific fruits. Do you know what fruit is most common in Hawaii? Come back on Monday and find out as well as learn something about this highly nutritious fruit.
Mahalo for visiting!
