Michael teased the boys asking “Who’s the smartest one of you?” They hesitated and answered “Depends on what subject.” He said “”Anything” then crushed a leaf from a beautiful tree between his fingers and asked “What kind of tree is this?” It had seeds so one of the boys said “Cloves!” Michael said “You’re close” and we moved along down the long beautiful property over to greenhouses bordered with patches of Chocolate mint, Foot long runner beans, exotic blooming Jasmine, orange trumpet flowers, passion-flowers that don’t make lilikoi but have a gorgeous blue color and a scent. We smelled exotic flowers everywhere and of course we saw a multi-colored Jackson Chameleon in the vines. There were orchards of citrus and honey beees too. The orange blossom smell was in the air reminding me of summers in California.
At one point he showed us the Man-eating flower and again teased the boys “Don’t put your hand in there” 🙂
This was a private tour. We’d love to take people on private tours that we can personalize for you. As we visit more farms on Maui we’ll show you what’s available to see. We will visit Coffee farms, flower farms, taro farms, herbs and flower farms, and we’ll be offering a farm-to-table tour that follows the Chef in the morning to the farm to gather the food for the evening dinner.
This is very exciting and fun to share with everyone.
