KAHULUI - Plants and vegetables grown by University of Hawaii Maui College students will be for sale Thursday from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the college's greenhouse.
Raised by the agriculture and natural resources program students, plants for sale include poha, mamaki and flowering plants, such as gazania and geraniums. There also will be herb baskets, native Hawaiian varieties and tissue-cultured bananas - including hard-to-find Lady Finger, dwarf red, Putalinga Kula, Psiang Awak and Mysore, and more common Bluefield, Williams and apple varieties.
Students in the sustainable-crop-production class will offer cut flowers and fresh produce, including different kinds of tomatoes, eggplant, peppers, herbs, cucumbers and beans.
