Maui Fruits

My dad has done a great job of planting fruit trees on the property.  Some of them are more experimental than others but thus far he has been very successful at them.  There are many that has impressed me but some are more interesting than others especially the dragon fruit. 2 years ago it was just a bunch of worn out cactus looking plant but now it's thriving with more fruit than we can eat.  The other is the coconut tree that I shall show in the next post.  For now enjoy the fruit that has been the labor of love from my dad.
