rive as though you are going to the well known Kilauea Lighthouse. The market will be on your right about 1/2 a mile before the lighthouse. Look for a knee high sign with an arrow pointing toward the market. The market is in the parking lot of the local community center and gym next to Kilauea Town Market, Kong Lung Store and a wonderful local bakery and pizza place.
Here we sell a variety of different fruits and veggies and of course our gingers and turmeric.
All our produce is certified organic by ICS(International Certification services)
In 1980 we started growing organic fruits and vegetables. Since 1999 our primary product has been fresh ginger. We harvest the ginger on a per order basis so that you receive the product fresh often only a few days out of the ground.
We offer white and yellow ginger, Thai ginger (galangal) and turmeric (olena) on line and of course at the two local sunshine markets.
White ginger is often used in it's baby or young stage for sushi and pickled ginger but is also very tasty in it's mature form with a wonderful flavor preferred by many and generally found in commercial food stores. We can ship you young "baby ginger" September through November on a per order basis. However it is most tender in September and October with it's harder, more mature skin developing more every day through November.
Yellow ginger is smaller than the white but often thought to be more pungent and is the variety most often found in health food stores.
Galangal or Thai ginger is unique unto itself and very pungent. It is commonly used in those wonderful Thai dishes we personally love.
Turmeric is also a root that grows similar to the ginger. IT is used inmany Asian and Indian dishes. It's pungent flavor adds to curry, rice and stir fry's. It's deep yellow/orange color is often used to brighten foods and added to broaden the flavor.
