Hope you don't mind a touristy question. I will be visiting Kauai (east coast) in mid February next year. Is there any local fruit that is likely to be ripening at that time of year? Thanks.
Bananas, guavas, loquat, and papayas are some that I would expect to find ripening/ripe at that time of year, but, to find out for sure, call the Kauai Agricultural Extension Office at 808-274-3471. They can probably list many more types and confirm the ones I listed.
BTW, Be sure to schedule some time to see the Limahuli Garden on the north shore, the McBryde Garden on the south shore, and Waimea Canyon/Kokee State Park. If you've never seen the Kokee area, you won't believe the amazing sites! It's definitely a world-class destination.
