For more than a century Maui was the heart of the Hawaiian pineapple industry. Maui Pineapple: Golden Legacy of the Crowned Fruit reviews the storied history of pineapple on Maui, from its beginnings in the 1840s, when thousands of fresh fruit went by clipper ship to California, to the Hawaiian pineappleʻs glory days of the early 1900s, up through the industryʻs contraction due to international competition.
