fruit or seed
Oh I love hua ʻai. The first thing I like to do in the morning (after my cup of coffee) is to make a hua ʻai smoothie. And two of my favorite hua ʻai are in season right now: manakō (mango) and laikī (lychee) (neither of which I have ready access to so if you do, LET ME KNOW!).
The word hua actually refers to a bunch of things, like fruit, seed, ovum, grain, tuber. The ʻai following hua means edible. So hua ʻai literally means edible fruit or seed. I guess that is to distinguish hua ʻai from other tubers and fruits and seed that are not edible.
ʻOno au i ka hua ʻai - I am ʻono for fruit.
ʻO ka manakō kaʻu hua ʻai punahele - Mango is my favorite fruit.
He aha kāu hua ʻai punahele? - What is your favorite fruit?
