Best time to go to Hawaii?
« on: December 22, 2021, 02:46:49 PM »
I plan on going to Hawaii either on May, June, or July.
When is the best time to go? What fruits are available these months? Want to go when there are more fruits available.
Thanks!

October to feb/ March if you want durian, may be able to find some off season. May- august is mango and lychee season

You can go to "Frankies" on Oahu, they sell fruit and nice plants as well.

fall/winter is the best fruit season here in my opinion. lots of artocarpus and the durians of course. its been an off year for the durians though, or the trees lost fruit during the last wind storm.

depends on what island your going to for markets. theres always stuff available in each season though. almost always soursops and rollinia season

Thanks for the replies everyone,
Looks like there will be a decent selection available...I really want to try marang and other artocarpus, but looks like I'll be going the wrong time of year.

Best time to go to Hawaii is whenever you have time off. But my favorite time is June-July: mangoees, lychees, and many others, plus not so  many tourists, and usually lots of good events going on.
In summer months there are some artocarpus like jackfruits and chempedaks.
Best island for fruits is island of Hawaii, and best side is Hilo side.
If you do a search this same question has been asked many times and places to visit have been listed.
