Eric and Harold Tanouye
Our History
Harold Tanouye, President of Green Point Nurseries, started in the flower business when he returned to Hawai'i from college. It was 1957, and Hilo 's economy had not yet recovered from the impact of WWII. People were moving away.
But Harold wanted to live in his hometown and he needed work. He recognized a demand for anthuriums, which military personnel had sent home to parents and girlfriends during the war, and which people were still shipping via airmail and special delivery.
Growing anthuriums in Hilo was only a part-time, backyard-type cottage industry then. "I decided I wanted to do it as a business," he says.
...
Harold and Eric are the third and fourth generations of the Tanouye family to farm in Hawai'i.
...
Harold remembers decades ago when a group of Mainland wholesalers toured the farm, and then told him that the reason they decided to buy from Green Point was because the farm was so neat and clean.
...
It was Harold who came up with the hermetically sealed, gusseted polyethylene bag inside the carton, which changed how flowers are shipped and is now the industry standard. At Green Point, we were among the first to put up large shade houses for growing. We were the first at large-scale use of cinder as growing material, and to start irrigating here in Hilo .
"We have made it because of innovation," says Harold.

Similarly, Harold Tanouye, founder and president of Green Point Nurseries in Hilo, said UH work promises to cut down on the costs of plant propagation methods aimed at controlling bacteria that attack anthuriums.
"The biotechnology is a way of reducing the costs of production," he said. "We're doing everything to cut costs in order to remain a viable diversified crop grown in Hawai'i."
Lowering costs is key because Hawai'i anthuriums compete with those grown in lower-wage countries such as Costa Rica, Jamaica and Trinidad.
"We're talking about places that pay $5 to $8 a day for supervisory labor," Tanouye said.
