  • Loved walking & exploring the vast grounds. 100+ year old fruit trees, samples of exotic fruits in the gift shop. Awesome experience to take a stroll & be welcome to any falling fruit as you go. There was even a big area where park staff had hung up bunches of mini bananas for patrons. Great experience
  • My husband and I had a great tour. We got to taste a lot of exotic fruit. The park is well maintained and the staff are super friendly and knowledgeable. A fun afternoon of learning about trees, plants, seeds. Would visit here often if I lived in Florida.
