Having gone through the Maui Tropical Plantation 15 years ago, we were just a little disappointed because it seemed like there were more flowers, etc. However, our tour guide was excellent and it was a very informative tour. The coconut demo was excellent.

The only purpose I can think of this place existing is to separate tourists from their money. That being said, there is a large gift shop with a lot of the stuff that you would find at a Hilo Hatties. The gardens are pleasant to walk around in. I don't know if I would pay to take the tram ride... More

This was our last stop as part of a 5 hour tour and it was good to walk around, browse in the gift shop which had a very large variety of items offered. I purchased a print of a plumeria flower in the art gallery section for a much more reasonable price than seen elsewhere. The ride on the wagon... More

The staff was awesome, I didn't get her name, but a young Hawaiian girl who was our guide was very smart and funny. There is a produce market on the grounds that sells the food... More

A tram takes you on a drive through a plantation that has a sampling of most of Hawaii's fruit origins. For example one can see pineapple, mango and other fruits growing. A demonstration is given as to how to get inside the coconut. There are even zip lines on the grounds that would be more for those first timers with... More

We visited this place twice during our family vacation, everyone enjoyed it. We bought a lot of papayas and apple banana at the farm. The papaya was cheap and tasted so good! We love the variety of fresh produce sold in this farm, too bad they don't sell coconut. There is a pineapple field just outside of the farm, the... More

Kumu Farms is an organic farm on the island of Molokai, but a few years ago they branched out to Maui and now grow papaya, apple bananas, and other produce on Maui Tropical Plantation -- all of it organic and (I believe) non-GMO. The produce is field-fresh and delicious and they told us that they supply many of the high-end... More
