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 are stocked Mondays and Thursdays and are first come first serve.
Pre-Orders are available for Shrimp and Tilapia.
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. Kualoa Grown is one of the few producers on Oahu 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
All pre-orders for shrimp and Tilapia must be made 24 hours in advance and can be made by:

We do not offer shipping and all pre-orders must be picked up directly from our Kualoa Ranch Visitor Center. We ask that you pick up your order by the specified pick up date to ensure freshness.
Mahalo for supporting Kualoa Grown!
Q: What are the hours of the Kualoa Ranch Visitor Center?
A: We are open 7 days a week from 7:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. However, we recommend arriving by 6:00 p.m. to complete your transaction
Q: What variety of shrimp and oysters do you grow?
A: We grow Pacific White Shrimp (Panaeus Vannamei) and sterile Pacific Triploid Oysters.
Q: Are my oysters still okay to eat if they are slightly open?
A: Yes. This typically occurs due to the temperature change from our pond waters to the refrigerator. If you let your oysters warm up to room temperature, they should close.
Q: Do your oysters come pre-shucked?
A: Our oysters are not pre-shucked, however, we do offer oyster shuckers for sale in our retail center.
Q: Do you offer oysters between the months of June and August?
A: Yes. Due to our climate in Hawai`i, we grow and sell oysters year-round with the same high quality and taste.
Q: How soon should I consume my oysters?
A: Our oysters should be consumed within 3 days of purchase.
