Early Polynesian voyagers first brought the coconut palm across the Pacific hundreds of years ago. Coconuts, or niu (nee-yoo) in Hawaiian, flourished in Hawaii’s rich volcanic soil and warm tropical climate. They can reach up to 100 feet in height and can take nearly a year to mature. Ancient Hawaiians used every part of the coconut tree! Aside from food, coconut palms were woven into baskets and its fiber was made into rope. It was also used for housing and transport amongst many other uses. To this day, ancient coconut groves still exist in Hawai’i.
This month, we selected items surrounding the beloved coconut of Hawai’i, just in time for World Coconut Day on September 2!
