This park was created to help the residents of south Florida learn about what they can grow in their gardens. I went during mango season; they were dropping from the trees. You are allowed to eat anything you find on the ground so I tried a few different ones. The tour is well worth taking because the guides are permitted... More

We had been wanting to visit this 35 acre park for years and finally got to go today. What an amazing collection of mature tropical and subtropical plants. It was so interesting and we tasted many varieties of the fruits including about 6 varieties of mangoes (there are over 100 varieties planted; we tasted bananas, miracle fruit, jaboticaba, ackee fruits,...

Stopped on way back from everglades trip. Didn't know what to expect. Glad we went. Walked round first and sampled fruit. Policy is - if you know what it is and it falls off the tree. You can eat it. You can't take it away with you. After walk jumped on the guided tour. Very informative, and well presented. A... More

I learned so much about the fruits and spices we take for granted. The tour guide was very knowledgeable and personable, and the whole experience was a blast. Got to run around like a little kid eating fruit that fell off the trees. And tasted fruits I never even knew existed. Turns out I hate jackfruit, but I never would... More

It simply wasn't to my taste, I felt like it was much smaller than I thought it would be and so it was a very short (and slightly boring) visit. However the gift shop was sweet and the lady that worked there was helpful.

This is MY experience on this particular day. We arrived at 9:30 to find TODAY they don't open until 10. Waited in the humidity for a half hour. For the record, the best time to do things when it is this hot outside is early and late, not 10-4. Walked in, staff already seemed harried and ragged when they had... More

If you are a gardener, or interested in fruit & spice trees, this is the place. Wonderful greeting by staff. Samples of ripe off-beat fruit for the tasting. Ground offered a self tour. Had only an hour, but saw over 80%. Recommend for adults & kids.

With its distinctive tropical environment, the park accommodates more than 500 varieties of fruits and spices, and vegetables from around the world. A guided tram tour, or walk as some prefer. Summer fruits include many varities of avocado, mango, lychee and longan, and banana. The park has an asian greenhouse, a shop with a tasting table of seasonal produce, picnic... More

I went on a mobile tour of this park that was created in the early 1900's and unusual fruit and spice trees have been added through the years. You will find out where cinnamon and nutmeg come from. Also, did you know that cashews are actually stems from a fruit? You will get to sample plants during the tour.
