KualoaGrown provides our island community and visitors with fresh, locally grown, and responsibly raised food while working to preserve the natural beauty of Kualoa Ranch Nature Reserve
Oysters and shrimp are available in our new KualoaGrown walk-in market. The Market is open Thursdays-Sundays, 10AM-5PM.
Kualoa Grown is proud to offer Pacific Saltwater Oysters grown in the clean, nutrient-rich waters of Moli`i pond using a floating basket growing method. Thanks to our experience and growing environment, our oysters are ready for market in 9 months. Our oysters are depurated for 48 hours prior to sale giving them a clean taste and firm texture.
Our Pacific White Shrimp are farm-raised in earthen ponds located in Hakipu`u Valley, and they are harvested regularly to ensure freshness. KualoaGrown is one of the few producers on O’ahu offering this uniquely local product.
Our freshwater Tilapia are raised in our Pahalona Agriculture Center’s aquaculture system and are fed a high-quality diet. They are big bodied, mild in flavor, have firm filets, and range from two to five pounds. When our tilapia is market-ready, they are harvested, cleaned, and stored on ice for pick-up.

A: Our oysters are not pre-shucked, however, we do offer oyster shuckers for sale in our retail center.
