What you'll do
We will tour both the front and back yards. We will talk about each of the trees and what makes it special enough to make the collection - what type of fruit/flower does it provide, how does it taste/smell, what is the season, is it sub-tropical or tropical, etc. The groups will be kept to only six people, so this will be a more intimate experience. We will also pick any fruits that are ready and sample them later. Taking this experience will allow you to: see, touch, smell and taste the tropics. There are three honeybee hives on property, and you will see first-hand how docile these beneficial creatures are. I don't take their honey, so we have a great working relationship. You will see tropical animals, such as geckos, birds and of course, the infamous green iguana. The experience is on a canal, and on a nice clear day you can see all sorts of aquatic life. Afterwards, we will recap everything, taste the available fruits and drink sun brewed tea.
I have created a tropical oasis in the suburbs outside of Fort Lauderdale. I have 107 fruiting trees/plants on a 1/4 acre of land! And that includes a house! This includes: 38 mango trees; 14 jackfruit trees; 4 mamey sapotes and many others. It has taken me over 10,000 hours to craft my paradise, but now I have something that is truly special. In addition to producing 1,000's of pounds of food each year, this is a beautiful place to visit. I am a paid instructor for several different horticultural classes. I am on the board of the Broward Rare Fruit and Vegetable council and have been a member for almost 10 years. However, the most important thing is my extreme passion for gardening and my willingness to try.

We will sample the fruits that are in season.
Sun brewed tea will be provided.
