FARM TOURS IN MAKAWAO
The tours will take you on the fields where they grow their crops and the guides will narrate the story of pineapple growing here on Maui. The pineapples they grow here have been cultured for many years. They had many trials and errors to get the extra sweet flavor and low acidity of the world-renowned fruit. They started this in the 1930’s when the 3 biggest fruit companies came together to fund the Pineapple Research Institute at the University of Hawaii. These three were the Maui Pineapple Company, Dole, and Del Monte. After years of research, they came upon PRI(Pineapple Research Institute) variety 73-50.
These tours will give you a glimpse of the century-old story of the Maui Gold Pineapple Farm. This tour comes with an option for lunch. You will go to Haliimaile General Tour for lunch. Afterward, you can join a tour of the Haliimaile Distilling Company’s distillery. Here you can see how they make vodka out of Pineapples.
Here is a list of the different options for Farm Tours in Maalaea.
