We loved learning about all the exotic fruiting plants in their collection. Orville was a terrific guide and very thorough, and we definitely had a lot of questions that he answered. I wish I had a pen and paper to write all the names of plants and fruits down. The matasabor was the best experience, thank you!!

This is a lovely botanical location. However, unless you really know your stuff, you must take the guided tour. We had an excellent tour guide and enjoyed munching on fruit picked straight from the trees as we walked around the beautiful grounds. Afterwards we tasted more tropical fruit and tried one of those crazy berries that changes all sour flavors to sweet (bizarre!). Recommended.

This was a great visit. We ended up taking a guided tour with Anna, who was extremely knowledgeable about the variety of trees and fruits. At the very least, kids would enjoy the tour seeing the ducks and chickens who follow you around the area of the conservatory waiting to be fed. One cute duck was "Daffy", a real ham. There is also a sanctuary with parrots, iguanas, turtle and a watusa, oh, and a squirrel from the mainland. At the end of the tour we were treated to a tasting of a variety of different fruits from the grounds. The staff was very friendly. It is worth the trip.

We have been going to this place for years and it has gotten better over the years as they expand. My sister-in-law got married there two years ago and it was very nice.
