Avocados, which are indigenous to Central and South America, actually made their way to Asia a few centuries ago and then were brought back to South Florida within the last 200 years by a man by the name of David Fairchild (who was married to someone you might know - Alexander Graham Bell's daughter). Along with 20,000 other plants he truly was the pioneer in the tropical fruit business. If you ever get to south Florida please visit the Kampong, where he lived in the lush groves known today as Coconut Grove.
The Avocado is the biggest commercially grown tropical fruit in South Florida. We have over 8,000 acres of production in the ground with over 30 different varieties. They all don't bloom at once so whatever week you order the fruit there may be a different variety coming in and they all taste a little different some are better then others . No one anywhere in the United States has the diversified production that we have and this will make for a treat for anyone interested in trying our Avocados.
They will come in all different shapes and sizes so don't be surprised when you receive your box and think "whats that?" Their vibrant sheen will make you come back to these beauties time and time again.
Due to the unusually hot summer, shipping highly perishable fruit is more tricky than usual Some fruit is arriving over-ripe. If you have an issue with your order, please call me. I pack every box myself, and want you to be happy with your fruit!
Fresh Gardens are growers and shippers of rare tropical fruits. Many items you may have never heard of, and that is what makes them so exciting. Most have been brought from South and central America and Asia. Although well known in those areas very few know of them here in the United States. That's my job as a grower of these items: to excite and get you into trying these exotic tropical fruit for the first time!
There are only a few areas in the United states these are grown and The Redland which is a 100 year plus historic agricultural growing region is one. We are south of Miami in Homestead just before you enter the Keys. You are invited to visit our farm for free as a tropical fruit of the month customer. We grow for you!!
