  • Dustin Plank / Special to The Garden Island

    From the shelves of Field Fresh Market in Ohio are “aloha peppers.”

    Stonehenge, including Emily Hartshorn, Nicole Bissara, Makoa Villaflor and Sarah McKamey, rock Kauai Christian Fellowship at the second Bandwagon/Aloha Angels Battle of the Bands in Poipu Saturday.

Dustin “Dusty” Plank from Ohio (and, for several months a year, of Maui) saw some interesting Field Fresh Market “aloha peppers” that look a lot like pumpkins except that they are bell peppers. With a name like “aloha peppers,” is that something that is available here? Might be something like the mgambo tree, which some people call “Maui minks” (how about “Hawaiian pussy willow?”).
