Zee, Francis, Amy Strauss, and Claire Arakawa. 2008. Propagation and cultivation of ohelo. Cooperative Extension Service, College of Tropical Agriculture and Human Resources, University of Hawaii at Manoa. Fruit and nuts 13. Feb. 2008.

Ohelo (Vaccinium reticulatum Smith) is a small, native Hawaiian shrub in the cranberry family, commonly found in disturbed, open sites at 2000 to 12,000 feet (640 to 3700 m) elevation on Maui and Hawaii. People frequently scour the landscape where it occurs, disrupting fragile habitats to harvest its delectable berries for use in jam, jelly, and pie filling. This impact on delicate environments might be reduced if ohelo berry could be cultivated and marketed to meet demand for the fruit. This publication describes nursery and field procedures for growing out ohelo seedlings and gives protocols for vegetative propagation of ohelo both from cuttings and by tissue culture.
