'O-helo Berries



The *'O-helo* that grows at higher altitudes and is abundant in the 
Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park 
and Volcano area. The plant is usually small, from 6 inches to waste 
high, though it can ocassionally be larger. The plant has many branches 
with small rounded leaves. Young leaves at the thops are redish with 
green mature leaves.

Related to the cranberry plant, the berries of the 'O-helo are edible 
and quite delicious. They range in color from bright red to yellows and 
oranges and the color is not necessairly indicative of the ripeness. The 
berries can be slightly tart to very sweet, depending on the plant and 
the maturity of the berries. While 'O-helo grows berries throughout the 
year and plants with berries may be next to ones that just had berries - 
there are definate seasons where more berries are produced.

The 'O-helo berry was considered sacred to the Volcano Goddess Pele and 
offerings of branches with fruit were made into the Ki-lauea volcano. 
Today the berry is a favorite staple of the *Hawaiian Ne-ne- Goose* 
as well as people.

*Important Note: Because the 'O-helo berry is eaten by the protected 
Ne-ne- Goose do not pick any berries you find in the park.*

Related to the 'O-helo is the 'O-helo kau la- au. This plant grows much 
taller, up to 6 ft and is more of a bush. The leaves and berries are 
much larger as well. The berries are also edible and when ripe can be 
quite sweet - though this variety is much harder to find.

Good Mana!
