It's shame that the people in Honolulu seldom get to taste the sweet and flavorful strawberries that come from Kamuela. Although they are not as large as the berries that come from Southern Cal, they are every bit as sweet, just as if you were there picking your own.
The growers here need to promote their fruit and vegetables with the Chef's and restaurants in Honolulu.
No more green mainland strawberries for me.
It's a shame that the Superferry never got a chance to come to the Big Island to help the producers of fruit and vegetables here. Honolulu would have benefitted with the fresh produce that would have come from Waimea.

Hawaii needs to use Ag land to grow food, not GMO seeds that the GMO scientists will not even eat. Hawaii imports too much food and are subject to imported oil prices.
