There is always ten different tropical fruit on the menu - fruit you have probably never heard of,with names like 'chocolate pudding fruit' and 'creme caramel fruit'.We show you how to prepare and eat the fruit, share interesting stories about the fruit from around the world, and then take you for a walk through the orchard which has more than 2000 fruit trees from the Amazon, Borneo and the Caribbean. This tour is not just a plate of fruit - it offers a special experience which cannot be found anywhere else and is great fun. « less

Since I enjoy gardening and growing produce, I was really looking forward to this excursion and learning about a different ecosystem than the one in Texas. I read all the reviews; most were positive, so I figured this would be a great experience. We arrived approximately 15-20 minutes early. My husband and I were stopped by Allison (I assume) as...

Allison and Digby have an amazing fruit farm. The tasting presentation by Bret was very fun and informative, and the fruit was an interesting mix that you just wont get anywhere else! I highly recommend taking a few hours out of your day and visiting this fruit tasting and tour!!

This was started by Alison and Digby Gotts as a fruit farm in the late 1980's. They grew a variety of fruits taken from tropical areas all over the world. They provide a fruit tasting session and lecture on ten different fruits taken from their orchard on a daily basis. This is a fascinating insight into the different fruits which... More

This is a well worth guided tour of exotic fruit, with tasting of what is currently in season and then a tour of the grounds. Enthusiastic people on the farm show you fruit from all over the world that will grow in the specific climate. There is only one warning, you have to book the tour prior to arriving as... More

Oops! Didn't read the 'owners description' above. We rocked up at 3pm hoping to try some interesting fruits only to discover that they just do 2pm tours (not self guided as I had thought). No shop to purchase fruit or opportunity to try. Must read info next time!!!

thanks ddi for taking the time to write a review. I am sorry that you did not get to taste any exotic fruit. During the wet season, when the fruit harvest is plentiful, we do have a roadside stall at the farm gate, with an honesty box, and we sell a lot of fruit this way. But during July/August/September every... More
