`Ulu Duo

`Ulu (breadfruit) is one of the staple crops brought to Hawai`i via canoe by the earliest Polynesian settlers.  

A local myth tells of the God Kū, who sacrificed himself during a period of famine, and in his place grew an `ulu tree.  `Ulu trees can grow upwards of 60 feet high, and more than 40 feet across, yielding a bounty of fruit to feed many. 

`Ulu flour was used to make naan, which is accompanied by an `ulu hummus and Mauna Kea "olives" (plums cured like olives).
