Each fruit usually has one seed inside. All of the trees shown are grown from seed on our Haiku, Maui 2 acre Family Farm. When in season, we also offer the seeds.
Grow your own Maui Mountain Apple tree from a seed. This tropical plant is also known as Ohi'a 'ai, and is considered a Hawaiian 'Canoe Plant'. Please google more about this fascinating term.
