My little orange orchard in Huelo, Haiku Maui HI

We love to be growing our own oranges in Haiku Maui!

While it's taken some time for the trees to mature, it's been worth the wait of about 20 years.  It wouldn't have taken so long normally, but due to many adverse conditions these trees were slow to grow and produce fruit.  We had to amend the soil and there were a few years when we didn't give them enough attention.  But since some time has passed, the ground is much more fertile and the windbreaks have protected these fruit trees. Now we can enjoy some juicy ripe oranges right off the trees.

Besides the delicious fruits, the orange blossoms are a real delight to smell!  Right now the trees are bearing a few oranges, and flowering as well.  The scent is heavenly, and reminds me of a visit to Orange County in California many many years ago.

Growing oranges and other citrus trees in Haiku can be easy if you have some good soil and a little spot that's not too windy.  With ample rainfall the trees will thrive and be productive for decades.  Don't hesitate to plant some as soon as you can.

Are you looking for some land in Haiku where you can start your own little orchard or farm?  Search the Maui MLS for Haiku land for sale and let me help you to buy the parcel of your dreams.
