Hala Fruit

Turning over a new leaf in the Pacific Islands

Hala Fruit thanks to Keith Blake

Pandanus tectorius is a species of Pandanus (screwpine) that is native to Malesia, eastern Australia, and the Pacific Islands. Common names in English include Tahitian screwpine, thatch screwpine, and Hala tree - the fruit is known as Hala fruit.

Lauhala(lau meaning “leaf” in the Hawaiian language) refers to the leaves of the hala tree, which is of great cultural, health and economic importance in many Pacific Islands. The fruit of the tree is used as a food source in many Pacific Islands. The fruits are often consumed fresh, or as a preserved food while the trunks can be used as building material, and leaves for thatching. Though many parts of the hala tree are utilized, in Hawaii the most common use of Hala is the leaves.
