Oahu/Hl fruit question!
« on: March 16, 2023, 02:43:53 PM »
Hello all,

I am going to be visiting the entire Oahu area in May. I was wondering if anyone could point me in the direction of some gummy worm fruit (cecropia). Perhaps a farm, grower, or somewhere wild?

Really looking forward to buying some while I am there!

Thanks!

the only place or farm I know of that might have this fruit or know where you could find it would be Franks Nursery. Good luck

Surely you値l see it if you値l be all over Oahu. It is a weed tree in Hawaii, not worthy of propogation by a nursery.

I never found the edible cecropia fruit here (Puna area), we had a cecropia tree in the back that I cut down but the fruits were woody and not edible.

Maybe the edible ones are around but I haven't seen them, or maybe we just picked at the wrong time

Thanks! I will be driving across the entire island so I am hoping to be able to spot it. Was there a certain area that you've seen it in (if you've been)?

Idk about Oahu but on Hawai'i I've only ever seen them Hilo side, so look in more wet areas.
