Exhibiting a wealth of Hawaiian ethnobotanical traditions and some rare plants found only in cultivation, this 12-acre garden contains 250 types of plants typical of an early Hawaiian ahupuaa, the usually pie-shaped land divisions that ran from the mountains to the sea. The visitor center, now on the south side of the garden, includes a gift shop. The garden is 12 miles south of Kailua-Kona, across from the Manago Hotel. Call for information on guided tours.

We have never taken the tour, but we never miss visiting here. We stock up on on Kona and Peaberry Coffee. An extra bonus is picking fruit and avocados from the tree for purchase. My favorite is their Chocolate covered peaberries.
