Aloha, I'm Kanani
My husband Rooke and I have five keiki, the namesakes of HI Five ‘Ulu. As a stay at home mom, my life revolves around feeding Shiloh(7), Emma(4), Ezra(3), Colbie(1) and Norah(1). Sometimes my kitchen feels more like a restaurant! In 2011 when our first child was born, Rooke planted the baby’s piko under an ‘ulu tree. That was my first introduction to ‘ulu, Hawaiian breadfruit, and I have been learning to cook with it ever since.
HI Five ‘Ulu may be a small company, but I also want it to have a purposeful impact in Hawai’i. In order to do so, HI Five ‘Ulu donates 10% of sales to local charities throughout the state of Hawai’i.
The heart of HI Five ‘Ulu is to bring you ‘ono breadfruit products with purpose. We are excited to build a stronger community with you.
Love and Aloha,
‘Ulu, also known as breadfruit, has a rich history in Polynesia. Once a staple in Hawaiian diets, it is positioned to regain much of its popularity. In mature stages, it can be used as a vegetable or starch. Ripe, it is soft and sweet, excellent for desserts.
Check out The Breadfruit Institute for more information about ‘ulu.
