Fruit and Spice Park


The Fruit and Spice Park, located in Homestead, Florida, is a unique place to visit. It is a thirty acre public park that features 500 varieties of fruits, vegetables, spices, herbs, and nuts. Guided tours are available, and visitors can quite literally munch their way through the garden.  (There's a tasting counter at the park shop to sample things you can't yank off the plants and eat.)  If you want to learn about fruits and vegetables and see how they are naturally grown (especially ones that aren't found in your area), this is the place to visit.


The park is open daily from 10:00 AM to 5:00 PM.  Cost of admission for adults is $5.00, and for children, it is $1.50.



Before I go, I'd like to let you know that as a follow up to my radio interview, Solving the Hunger Problem, I created a Facebook group dedicated to sharing ideas that might make a difference for those who struggle with hunger issues.  You can find it here.  If you're on Facebook, I invite you to join.

  3. Hi, Sherry. Sounds like a great park to visit. Getting to sample fruits and veggies while touring the park sounds like fun. The price of admission is very reasonable too.

  4. Hello Sherry. What a wonderful place that is - I wish there were something similar over here!
    I listened to your radio interview and was quite surprised at what you reported. From Europe, the consensus is that Americans don't look hungry!
    Continuing my experiment of mentioning what I am listening to while commenting or posting: Right now it's Julian Bream playing some of the Villa-Lobos Preludes.

    1. The interesting thing, is that while Americans are hungry, what they're eating is unhealthy, which is contributing to the obesity problem.
