The favorite variety of many chefs with its sweet flavor, low fiber, large size, and thin seed. Note, the skin stays mostly green even when they're ready to eat. Test for ripeness by pressing gently on the skin – it should give slightly.
On September 8th, 2015 ʻAina Ho'okupu O Kīlauea (AHK) became an official 501(c)(3) not-for-profit organization with the dedicated goal of being able to facilitate solutions to economic, social, and agricultural/food security challenges that the greater Kīlauea community faces.
The first and perhaps most daring undertaking was accepting stewardship of a 75-acre parcel from the County of Kaua'i, formerly owned by the Kīlauea Sugar Plantation Co. This flagship project was celebrated as the successful culmination of a 30-year preservation battle by the community, to prevent further development of gentleman’s estates, such as the elite Seacliff Plantation gated community that lies Makai side of the parcel. The 75-acre parcel was originally called the Kīlauea Agricultural Park, but was changed to Kīlauea Community Agricultural Center (KCAC) in 2016 to honor and commemorate the never-failing determination by the Kīlauea community to protect this important historical open space.
The Kilauea Community Agricultural Center works to contribute to island food security and to a healthy, stable, balanced local agricultural economy by:
- Providing valuable productive agricultural land at low or no cost to farmers
- Providing low or no cost community garden plots
- Operating Kilauea Community Farm, producing produce at low or no cost to community members in need
- Providing a stable, safe, and permanent Farmers Market facility for ongoing direct-to-consumer produce market development
