Spring Harvest is Coming Soon!-Maui Kuʻia Estate Chocolate

This will be our first harvest since the Lahaina fire that damaged our cacao trees. The cacao fruit is showing signs of substantial growth as we expect a successful spring harvest this year.

We are preparing for our first spring harvest, which will begin in early April.

Our cacao trees are showing signs of resilience and development, and this spring's harvest is looking promising, as is our expected second harvest later in the summer!
