Cape Trib Exotic Fruit Farm
More attraction details
Attraction details
Owner description: We offer an Exotic Fruit Tasting and Orchard Tour every day at 2 pm. 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.

Loved the strange looking and tasty fruits that were ripe at the time of our tasting. The History of the farm and its owners was extremely interesting. then a lovely stroll around the farm seeing the trees that produce the fruit. Very informative and Interesting and some amazing fruit. There was no fruit for purchasing but some jams made from the fruits that were in surplus. Great idea

Brett opened with a lovely history of the farm. We then proceeded to try the fruit. Fruit is whatever is best on the day & we had a selection of 10 to eat. We had eaten many before, but these organic ones were juicy & tasted magnificent. Limiting attendance to 15 people kept it nicely intimate and we still had a wide range of people visiting. It was a bit of a race at the end after we had tried everything as we wanted to grab a second taste of the Sapodilla, though my youngest seemed to have the Davidson’s Plums all to herself. The tour of the farm also highlighted just how much Digby & Alison had learnt & put into practice over the years.

Digby had been very accommodating with alterations in our plans while we booked, cancelled & re-booked to fit in with other activities on the day. We took advantage of leaving our car at the farm while we went jungle surfing.

ps apologies if I have misremembered Brett's name

Visited the place because we love exotic fruits and already had a great exotic fruit plantation visit in Malaysia. So we were very excited. When we arrived with our 1year old daughter we didn't feel very welcome with her and Alison (the owner) was not very happy that we didn't want to put her in a stroller and carried her in a baby Carrier as we always do. We had the feeling she wanted us to put her in the stroller and to be quiet and not able to touch or do anything. She gave us a seat at the entrance and said "in case that she has to be evacuated....". Sorry but in our language the meaning of evacuation is used in case of a catastrophe! So we traveld since almost 4months and we never felt so unwelcome. We can totally understand if someone says this is not a thing for infants, but if you do you should respect them and not just see troublemaker!
The tasting was very good and we had fruits we never had before and liked a lot. So it's tasty, informative and very interesting and if you come without children it might be very good.

Well behaved children are always welcome at the tasting, and children from 3 upwards usually have a great time.

but Expecting babies and toddlers to sit still for an hour, without crying, is a big ask. We ask parents to respect the needs of the whole group, and when a toddler starts to cry we ask the parents to take them outside, so that it does not destroy the experience for everybody else. By sitting next to the entrance, it is easy for parents to exit and return without disrupting the whole tasting.

Nursing an infant on your lap as well as trying to pass along a plate of fruit, and also take a piece to eat becomes a difficult balancing act. Hands free makes it easier for everybody in the group.

We also ask visitors to arrive 10 minutes before 2 pm so that people have a chance to settle in, have a drink, and check out the fruit bowl before we start. That way the toddler can be settled before we start, and shows respect for the presenter and helps contribute to the whole group enjoying the experience.

Fantastic visit that has to be a must do if you go up to Cape Trib. The fruits were all picked fresh that day from the farm and the chance to try fruits that you never even knew existed was just too good to believe! The presenter of the tour was incredibly knowledgeable and enthusiastic and the majority of the fruits were delicious! Even the ones that we werent so keen on, it was brilliant to watch peoples faces trying new things! Would definitely go back.
