They have lots of different fruit to try. They also have a cute little sitting area. It's a bit pricier than fruit sold at some other places on the island but it was a good quick stop.

We made a quick stop on our way down the island to get smoothies and learn about different varieties of tropical fruits. Strawberry papaya was the group's favorite! The girl working the stand was very helpful in taking smoothie orders for the 8 of us, as well as answering all of our questions and helping us select fruit that would ripen within the time we had to eat it. They also had locally made products like honey and jelly that we could take home with us. The cost of everything added up quickly, but we didn't think it unreasonable for what we were getting - locally and organically grown produce that was just delicious!

We stopped twice at the Kona Fruit Stand, once going down to Volcano National Park and again coming back up to Kona. The mango, star fruit and apple bananas were the best on the island. We had some fruit from other stands but nothing was as good as the fruit from this fruit stand. We also had an iced coffee which was very good and there was no need for sugar or cream. The ice cubes were frozen coffee so the coffee did not get watered down - great idea!!

Just had to try a ka'u orange after getting a recommendation from a local. Don't care where you get them, but add the ka'u orange to your trip, maybe take some for lunch to the volcano.

Anyway, the people at (what we call) the Hippie fruit stand are really nice and will tell you all about their local fruit. Their is a cool little garden to sit in with an overlook. Had we brought the kids I think they would all have found something to love.

Nice for a roadside stop. If you need a serious fruit fill-up stop at the Choice Mart grocery store just down the road and get a lot of the same stuff for a significant savings.

Yes, we have been here before and continue to be drawn back. The smoothies are great (this trip we tried several). They have lots of beautiful fresh fruits and baked goods (the macadamia nut blondies are super yummy)! The staff is pleasant and welcoming and they have a great view if you want to hang out while you sip your smoothie. We bought most of our fruit here during our stay (mango, papaya & Hawaii bananas)! All wonderful - highly recommend!
