Overview

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.

I think of myself as quite knowledgable about tropical fruits but this place certainly showed me a lot of knew things. Their flyer lists 42 fruits and tasting is dependant on seasonality. We tasted 12 fruits the day I was there and 8 were new...More

We stop here every time we go to cape trib. Beautiful trees and the best ice cream. The whole family enjoys it. There is very little choice - you get what has been made, but it is all homemade .

The property has been sold, the business has been closed, and the owners in their mid sixties have retired and moved to town. All the advertising signage and brochures have been removed. There may be a time lag for some removal requests. The purported conversation...More
