We learned the proper way to find a ripe mango, and how to slice it properly. We bought the mango, some pineapple and some boiled peanuts for lunch the next day.

They had a wide selection of fruits and vegetables. I didn't get to try the milk shakes, but they looked delicious.

They had a good selection of honey of various flavors. Some with the natural flavor of the flower, and some with added flavors. My favorite were the Tropical Blossom (flavor from the flower) and Cinnamon (with cinnamon oil added). Unfortunately, one month after our visit, they've both been consumed and all I have left are the empty jars.

If you're going to the Everglades National Park from Florida City, you'll pass right by so you might as well stop.

We stopped in on a weekend for a milkshake and to check out the fruits and veggies. The shakes were creamy, fruity and wonderful. The veggies and fruit for sale were plentiful but very expensive. We spent over a month in the Redlands Agricultural area and found several vendors selling the same items for much less. For instance, we bought 3# of fresh oranges from a local vendor on the side of the road for $3 and my wife made 2 pints of fresh orange marmalade out of three of the oranges and some sugar while Robert sells a one pint jar for $6.95. The shakes are worth the trip, the fruit and veggies are overpriced. I will say the local ambiance is worth a stop.

Robert started selling his father's cucumbers on this location many years ago. He now runs a mega-fruit stand, with an amazing variety of fruit. I've been coming here for well over 10 years now, and consider it a must-visit every time I'm in the area. They have lots of free samples, and some very interesting fruit shakes (with soft-serve ice cream).

You gotta get a milk shake when you go there......about 2 miles west of Florida City on the way to the Everglades National Park. And, you need to allow an hour to see and study all of the fruits that they sell. They have things there that you have never seen......and they have a very good pamphlet that gives information on all of the exotic fruits and how to use them.

They also have a good selection of vegetables (depending on season, etc.) and a great selection on packaged items such as jellies, pickles, honey, etc., etc., etc.,

Robert is Here is well worth the stop!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
