Tropical Fruit Garden

This area is currently under construction - damaged by weather.

If you are mad about mangos or passionate about pineapples you will want to visit this garden to learn more about these fruits and others.  With assistance from the Central Florida Tropical Fruit Society an array of plants such as bananas, sugar cane, carambolas, surinam cherry, guavas and papayas are being grown.
