How Crops Grow
in East Makawao.
Strangers naturally want to
know if any of the small farmers
in the pineapple or grape growing
business in tho East Makawao dis
trict have made anything in their
ventures. All i know about it is
there aro several small groworH
wno are in tne business and aro
staving by it as any man would
stay by a good thing and aro say
There are stories of men who
made something, which may not
agree with tho facts. For stories
aro easy of telling and tho crop is
plentiful. The stories related bo
low aro samples of those floating
round tno country side, and were
raised there, nurtured and turned
loose with' the propor earmarks for
any one to father or to disown
ns the whim might seize one.
Among the small pineapple
growers of Haiku is a skilled nur
sery man plant nursery man
who understands horticulture and
tho selection .and hybridising of
plants, and is an authority on
the mysteries of coaxing plants to
produce crops of the desired quali
ty at will, and is said to lie th
man among them all who has
made the biggest pile (probably
everybody added something to it
as the story is told) from the
smallest fields of pines of nnj II
grows theiiest pines and holds the
reputation of being the l.Jurbank
among the .ine growers of Haiku
He has the best fields and gels out
tho best crops of pines of any,
The writer's informant told him
that a friend of his recounted to
him what a friend of Mr. Lind
say's repeated to him whicl
was related to him by an
other who heard it from another
that this particular grower cleared
$13,000.00 from a seven to eight
acre field of pines.
n neiner it was me result ot a
single crop or of a half a dozen
crops in a buncii, tlic details arc
indifferent, being only a story
probably thrown out for unsuspi
cions people to into at and was
told the writer within a year or
two after the Haiku cannery went
into businers, and is here repeated
as a characteristic harmless story
from the pineapple district.
There is another story relating
to the fertility of tho district about
to bo opened for homesteaders. It
is about a Portuguese who had a
fine grape arbor. He grew enor
mous bunches of grapes on it, the
kind that has to bo carried on a
pole between two men faithfully
portrayed in Sunday school litera
ture, and he bragged about his gra
pes in season, and out of season,
much to tho disgust of his friends.
One day when he returned homo
after he had been around bragging
about his grapes as usual ho found
tho weight of tho grapes had crush
ed tho framework and busted tho
props of his pet arbor, and pigs
and fowl were feasting on tho fall
en fruit. Hint made him mad.
Ho suspects an innocent neighbor
of tho mischief and does not take
it as tho surest and most reliable
proof of his telling the truth. Not
at all. Ho wants to pull up his
vines and grow pines instead,
crops ho thinks which doesn't need
props to stay put.
Of course he lias not heard of the
man who lost his crop by the pines
growing larger and larger till they
got to tno size ot nail kegs and
kept right on growing largor till
tho plants got top-lien vy and tum
bled over so the fruit lay on the
ground with the roots in the air
which ruined the crop and killed
tho plants. Whatever is raised
has to be propped up or tho crop
would bo spoiled. Whether grapes,
pines or bananas, the farmer has
to buy posts and scantlings to hold
his crop up off tho ground, and the
expense of it is another draw back
in farming on tho virgin lands
of East Makawao.
Theso aro given as samples of
stories people love to swap with
one another when strangers are
around, and in a way illustrates
tho rare fertility of tho district, and
are not extraordinary stories when
taken only as such.
