While visiting a few places in the Redland on a recent Sunday we decided to visit this county-owned park. Admission was $8 per adult which includes the tram tour and the ability to taste countless fruits. We first took the tour which was wonderful. The guide was very informative and allowed us to try different fruits and spices. It was... More

Stopped in today for a tour. Met some other nice folks from other states also taking the tour. Guide was great, nice tram ride--comfortable. Only problem was we sometimes could not tell what tree/plant she was referring to because they were not labeled, all she did was point. A number, letter or something like a sign that the guide could... More

I went here with my family twice now, it's pretty cool. If you do anything with plants or gardening, or even cooking and baking, I highly recommend this place. They grow a bunch of herbs and fruits and spices (obviously) but they also have some cool plants like the poisonous plant section and they teach you about a lot of... More

While it's a neat place to visit anytime, it's better to visit when the park is hosting an event/fair.

South Florida's subtropical climate is ideal for the cultivation of many exotic fruits and vegetables as is evidenced in the many avocado groves and mango plantations in the Homestead/Redland area south of Miami. Having lived in this area myself it surprises me that there's not a thriving agritourism movement here with so much to enjoy and this park should be... More

The variety of edible plants here was fascinating . The tram tour gives a good overview and interesting information if you can make it out. The trams sound system is not the best. I suggest sitting in the 1st car so when the drive says "on your left" you are seeing what they are seeing.. Walking the ground after the... More

I absolutely love going to the Fruit and Spice Garden. The beautiful displays of exotic flowers, orchids, and other unusual plants want to make you take each varie home. Most recently we found jackfruit and have enjoyed eating it since.

The Fruit & Spice Park can be sort of boring, or very interesting -- depending on whether you take a walking tour or not. If you don't, then it's just a bunch of well maintained vegetation. But if you do, it's really interesting and you can learn a lot. And also -- FanTasTic Key Lime pie!

The grounds are well kept and they have lots of different trees, but the areas are not well marked and there is no relation to the map they provide. If you miss one of the guided tours, don't bother going because without the tour guide you won't know what anything is. Their map has numbered sections, but there are no... More

Been here 6 times, once to the park and 6 time to the restaurant. The park is interesting but once you have seen it, you have seen it. The restaurant (actually lunch hut" is a find. it only has about 8 tables and the service involves one waitress and someone in the kitchen making sandwiches. Last time we were there... More
