Fodor's Review

Want take-home gifts? This remarkable fruit stand sells more than 100 types of jams, jellies, honeys, and salad dressings along with its vegetables, juices, fabulous fresh-fruit milk shakes (try the papaya key lime or guanabana, under $6), and some 30 kinds of tropical fruits, including (in season) carambola, lychee, egg fruit, monstera, sapodilla, dragonfruit, genipa, sugar apple, and tamarind. Back in 1960, the stand got started when pint-sized Robert sat at this spot hawking his father's bumper cucumber crop. Now Robert (still on the scene daily with wife and kids), ships nationwide and donates seconds to needy area families. An assortment of animals out back—goats to iguanas and emus, along with a splash pool—creates entertainment value for youngsters. Picnic tables, benches, and a waterfall with a koi pond add serenity. On the way to Everglades National Park, Robert opens at 8 am, operating until at least 7, and shutting down from Labor Day until November.
