Always stop at Mr. Pineapple before you leave Maui. They have pineapples packed to travel. Every air traveler leaving Hawaii is entitled to have a box of pineapples baggage checked for free by the airlines. If you are taking Hawaiian to Honolulu to take another airline home they will fly it free also. They service many of the hotels and resorts and the prices are significantly cheaper here. At one resort, a pack ordered in the hotel was 2 for $23, at Mr. Pineapple it started at 3 for $19.95. We bought three 6 packs. The Maui Gold pineapples are sweeter and less acidic that the ones from Central America. Dole stopped growing for export from Hawaii to save transportation costs and also lowered the quality of the product available on the mainland which is really sad. They also ship a variety of fruit including coconuts and have fresh leis available.
It is located at the Shell station on Dairy Road a couple of blocks from the entrance to the airport and Costco. They have a truck parked in the lot and an office above the convenience story right next to the Shell station. The nice man helped us carry them down the stairs.
I do not know why anyone would want to have them shipped when you can have the airlines check them through for you. I read a review where someone had 12 shipped and was unhappy with the cost and the fact that some of them over ripened. At the the price of $100 he quoted they could not have been shipped overnight which is effectively what happens when you check them through. His bad experience seems due to not understanding the airlines policies of checking the boxes through to your destination without any fees.
