Fresh-picked fruit at Yee’s Orchard

Justin Arcano arranges fresh-picked fruit and specialty items like mango bread while helping open the Yee’s Orchard stand in Kihei on Saturday morning. The farm and stand were founded by his great-grandfather, Maui optometrist, Dr. Wilbert Yee. Arcano said he helps his grandparents, Pat and Harold Iwamoto, with the farm.“We’ve been here about 70 years,” Arcano said. He said business has not suffered during the coronavirus pandemic, and the crowd of shoppers who descended on the stand not long after opening proved his point. “It didn’t effect us too much,” Arcano said. “We’re farmers, and we have a lot of local clientele, a lot of weekly people who visit our stand.”
