On a whim a few days ago, I spent the day wandering around the Dole Plantation in Wahiawa, HI. Pineapples galore! I learned more about pineapples that I ever imagined. The Dole Plantation features traditionally grown varieties and international varieties, too... like pretty pink pineapples!
You can also get lost at the Dole Plantation. For real. On site is the World's Largest Maze (as declared by the 2008 Guinness Book of World Records. The Pineapple Garden Maze is laid out over 3 acres and contains more thant 11,400 Hawaiian plants. Some favorites were the ti leaf plants and hibiscus hedges.
At the Dole Plantation I ate the most delicious pineapple soft serve ice-cream, ever! It was superb! Can't believe I didn't take a picture of it. Actually, scrath that, I can. I was too bust eating it before it melted in the swealtering 92 degree weather.
How many people can say that they were at the world's largest functioning pineapple plantation? Or lost in the world's largest maze? I'll raise my hand to both of those now. So much fun and such a treat!
