"We don't have actual blueberries in Hawaii, but we do have a close cousin of the blueberry and the cranberry called the ohelo berry. It is about the same size as a blueberry but can be red or yellow and grows on low bushes on the big island around where we live. When our son picks ohelo berries by our house, he always tosses the first one to Pele, as a tribute to the old ways in Hawaii, where people would give offerings for the goddess of the volcano. We live within 2 miles of the most active volcano on earth, Kilauea, and on the flank of another dormant volcano, Mauna Loa. It is good to respect what is around us..."
