Kokee plum season open

LIHUE — The state Department of Land and Natural Resources will open this year’s season for plum harvesting at Kokee State Park today. For a number of reasons there are not many plums this year, but the season will open to allow legal picking by permit.

Permits are available at the Kokee Museum daily from 7 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. or at the State Parks office in Lihue on weekdays from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

There is no cost but forms must be completed and dropped in the box at the Kokee Museum after harvesting.

Harvesting is permitted between 7 a.m. and 5 p.m. in designated areas. Each person will be allowed to take up to five pounds of plums per day for personal consumption. Other conditions will be specified on the plum harvesting permit.

A short pole with a net will make harvesting easier. Plum pickers are reminded to help prevent forest fires and to pick up their litter.
