5 Fruit Trees That Flourish in Hawaii, Honolulu, Hawaii

Perhaps you recently moved to the islands and want to create a beautiful yard for you and your family to enjoy. Maybe you have lived in Hawaii for years and wish to improve your existing landscape design. Fruit trees add vibrant color to any yard, and many do well in Hawaii’s tropical climate.

5 Fruit Trees to Plant in Hawaii Gardens

1. Breadfruit

A member of the mulberry family, the breadfruit tree produces off-white or yellow oblong, oval, or round fruit. Rich in potassium and other minerals, the versatile, starchy fruit can be baked, fried, boiled, or steamed. Breadfruit trees provide up to 600 fruits a year, making them a welcome addition to your landscape design plans.

2. Mango

This juicy stone fruit tree grows only in semi-tropical and tropical climates. Both the leaves and the fruit are edible, with the leaves  contributing to diabetes management among other health benefits. The summertime fruit is also rich in vitamins A and C and minerals such as potassium and magnesium.

3. Banana

Another excellent source of potassium, bananas add green and yellow colors to your landscape design. Their skins are also edible. Plus, their plant fibers can be used to make clothes and their leaves as natural food platters.

This unusual fruit is full of healthy fat to keep the body satiated, lower cholesterol, and control blood pressure. Its oil has gained popularity as a cooking ingredient, and you can even make avocado butter to replace the dairy version.

5. Kumquat

Kumquats look similar to oranges, except they are oval-shaped. They keep longer than other fruit types because of their thick, insulating peels—you can even preserve them in sugar syrup. The fruit’s antimicrobial properties combat fungus and bacteria in the body. It is also an excellent source of vitamin C and antioxidants.
