RITZ CARLTON'S HERB GARDEN KAPALUA MAUI

The herb garden in the back of the Ritz Carlton Kapalua is a small piece of heaven. Walk down the hill and see the awesome Pacific Ocean and the famous D.T. Fleming beach. Hang a right and walk through the gates and you will see heaven. Heaven in the form of plants, and a peaceful quiet. If you got any stress, the herb garden is the fix for you. Visit the caretaker Frank, and he'll show you all the herbs and other fruits and vegetables that he grows for the chefs at the hotel to use. 

"Sometimes we have parties where the chef will do a cooking demonstration right here in the garden, and lots of people will attend," said Frank. "It's a learning experience for everyone. This is the real garden to table deal, the chefs will hand pick what they need and cook a very unique gourmet dish for the guests."

Frank showed me around, and some of the plants were sunflowers, chives, basil, pineapple, limes, Serrano peppers, Hawaiian chili peppers, sage, Italian parsley, asparagus, grapefruit, banana, apple banana, and more.

If you are staying near the Ritz in Kapalua, check them out and take a tour of their herb garden, and visit Frank, you'll be impressed by what he does, the grounds are just the right size to sustain the Ritz Carlton's kitchens.
