The growing seasons in Hawai'i may seem year-round, but we do
have at least two seasons (summer and winter) just not with as specific and
drastic temperature differences as the summer and winter seasons that I grew up
with in New York City.
This is some of the bounty from Hawai'i farmers
available year-round. The papaya are from one of the many farmers'
http://www.farmloversmarkets.com/blog/ operating now all over O'ahu and the
Neighbor Islands. There is still a relatively small yield of Hawaiian grown
pineapple, the featured one here is grown on Maui. The lime, well, it was
free....from my good friends' yard.
We favor these Maui Goldwhich are so sweet and juicy, my mouth waters at the thought of eating
In case you were wondering, the answer is NO...adding
pineapple as an ingredient to a recipe, does not make it a Hawaiian dish!
