The blue marble tree growing in Haiku Maui Hawaii
I have never seen anything like this before... bright blue fruits dropping from a tree in Haiku Maui.
So I looked it up, and apparently the blue marble tree comes from Australia, and is very sacred in India, yet here it is growing in Haiku Maui. Of course most anything grows quite well in Haiku so I shouldn't be surprised.
They were on the ground in all stages of fresh and decayed. Once the blue outer covering melts away, the inner seed is revealed. In India these seeds are called rudraksha and they are sacred because they have some kind of spiritual energy! They are strung together into rosary beads and incorporated into jewelry.
This was all very interesting to learn from just picking up some pretty blue marbles one day while showing a property for sale.
I know where this property is, in case you're looking for a very special and unique home in Haiku. Just ask, and I can show it to you if you're in the market.
Thanks for reading my Maui blog.
