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

The Fruit and Spice Park acts as an encyclopedia of the plants used by man for culinary purposes, throughout the world. Driving through Redland just to get there, you get a feeling of how central agriculture, trees, and fruit are to central Florida. The park is the jewel of the area, with a friendly staff, 40 acres of beautiful grounds,... More

Stumbled on to this place when my boyfriend and I just happened to see a sign when we were on our way to some Castle place near by. So glad we went. Cheap to get in. Parking was tough but worth it. The trees and gardens are amazing. But the best part of the visit is the tram ride and... More

This is a fantastic place to while away a few hours or the whole day. Who knew there were do many types of fruit? Tour was excellent with the guide spending time explaining the different areas to us and stopping plenty of times to allow us to try things. We came away with orange streaks on our faces and the...

Well maintained trails meander through many acres. Signage throughout identifies over 30 different trees, bushes, and other plants. Samples of the fruit are available for tasting in their small gift shop. And you are allowed to eat fruit that you find on the way (provided that you know what it is and if it is ripe).

Love taking a stroll through this place. There is plenty of staff around to answer any questions and share knowledge. So many plants and pathways to take in. There are even great little festivals with live music!!

Nice park with friendly staff. We enjoyed the free guided tour through the park. Informal and relaxing with narration about the various types of trees and fruits and their uses. You can also explore on foot and are allowed to eat any fruit that has dropped from the trees. Summer would be the better time to visit since there would... More

Wonderful walking paths and fruit trees, lots of places to pic nic Well worth the small entrance fee. Lots of fruit that I have never seen before hanging on the trees! If you love nature and the outdoors, this is the place for you. There is a cafe next door

I had no idea there were so many types of fruit! Had great fun hacking open a coconut. You can eat anything on the ground . Recommend going on the tram tour for sure.

This is a must stop when in the Redland and Homestead area. I suggest that you take the tram tour before actually walking the park. You will get so much out of the tour with regards to the different species, the vast different fruits and their uses. The visitor building offers some fresh fruit to try before or after the... More
