$89.00 BOOK NOW
Get to know the agricultural history of Maui and have a delicious tasting on this Maui Pineapple Tour with Lunch. From the middle 19th century, workers were imported from China, Japan and the Philippines to work in the sugar cane and later the pineapple fields of Maui. Longing for a new life with a promise of freedom, they came by the thousands. Camps were set-up by the plantation owners to house the workers. This created the Plantation Era on Maui. The days were long and the work was hard with the tropical sun beating down hour after hour. Yet, the workers endured and in doing so found a better way of life complete with the freedom they sought.
The pineapple fields upcountry are the only fields that remain in Hawaii. Due to the low cost of imported pineapple from other nations, the industry met a foe, it couldn’t work around. The fields today are hybrid pineapples known as Maui Gold. They are smaller and sweeter than the average pineapple.
Each guest on this Maui Pineapple Tour with Lunch receives a free pineapple and you can also purchase pineapple approved for shipping straight from the packing plant much cheaper than the any store or at the airport. Lunch is served at the General Store. At one time, this was the plantation camp store that was a favorite hang-out of the workers and families of the Haliimaile Plantation Camp. The store now is a restaurant that specializes in the cuisine from Maui during the plantation days. The executive chef is Beverly Gannon whose culinary skills are legendary.
