Finally learned what this tree is that I drive by every day – jackfruit. The flavor of Juicy Fruit Gum comes from it, I’m told. First time I saw it on the side of the road (in the World Botanical Garden nearby) I slammed on the brakes and had to take a closer look.

Checked out the local scene last night at Uncle Robert’s Awa Bar with music, farmers market and crafts every Wednesday night. South end of island where the town of Kalapana was wiped out by a huge lava flow. Later we walked out across a lava field to the ocean, a little tricky until we remembered we could use our iPhones as flashlights!
