“South FL tropical adult fruit & vegetable gardeners will love it”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2013

We visited yesterday on Mother's Day. Acres of fruit & vegetable trees; be prepared to walk a lot. The sampling table at the welcome center and the tram tour are musts as a starting point. Our guide (blonde hair, male) was excellent! Will be of special interest to gardeners in South FL trying to figure out what variety of mangoes to plant as you're able to sample any that have fallen on the ground. I ate way too many- bring lots of wet wipes! Had my first taste of Florida raspberries, discovered I liked white sapodilla, canistel/eggfruit and star apple but not jackfruit! Lychees weren't quite ripe - will be ready in 2 weeks. After the tour we ate lunch at the little restaurant next door and instead had a delicious lychee drink to console myself. Saw green lizards and iguanas sunning themselvses. If you have children or non-gardeners it may be better to come on a festival day when there's lots more to see.

“What an unusual find.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2013

In this park, you will be taken around by a knowledgeable guide who will allow you to sample the many many varieties of fruits that can be grown in South Florida. The guide was very friendly and helpful and, although it sounds a little funny, it was much more fun than I thought it would be.
