Can you grow tomatoes and peppers year-round in Hawaii?

God bless,

Aloha. Cherry tomatoes and chili peppers grow all year here, but full size tomatoes and sweet peppers need to be in a screenhouse or greenhouse because of fruitflies. Many other things grow year-round too, like potatoes, yams, green and other beans, especially lima's which are perennial here. In winter months and at higher elevations cool weather crops do well too.
