Kākoʻo ʻŌiwi offers high quality, freshly milled poi or paʻiʻai (a thicker, less processed kalo product) each Friday on a weekly basis, subject to kalo availability. Our poi is packaged in individual one-pound (1 lb.) bags which are sold at $5.00 per lb. Our milled paʻiʻai is packaged in half-pound (½ lb.) containers available for $5.00 each. Our paʻiʻai can be consumed as-is, made into other products such as poi mochi, or mixed with warm water to make poi to your preferred consistency.
Highlighting the Diversity of Native Cultivars
Each week, Kākoʻo features unique kalo blends emphasizing the broad diversity of native kalo cultivars (varieties). Our weekly kalo e-newsletters provide a brief description of the characteristics of the kalo varieties included in our weekly blend along with links to additional information and resources.
