Fresh Gardens cultivates a colorful crop of tropical fruits fetched from the more than 1,000 trees peppering its expansive, five-acre family farm. Gardening gurus guide visitors through aromatic groves of longan, lychee, golden passion fruit, guava, and other juicy gems, divulging exciting background history about the farm, its fruits, and the strange, mythical origins of the first ambrosia salad. After gleaning their fill of farm tales, guests go home with a basket packed with an assortment of Fresh Garden’s latest harvest, allowing entire families or solo savorers to enjoy sun-soaked produce perfect for juicing, slicing, or adding a tropical flair to family food fights.
It took a decade of setbacks and toil, but "Farmer Bob" Petrucci and his family diligently transformed a mundane cornfield in the Redland growing region into a rich cornucopia of exotic tropical produce from equatorial lands ranging from Thailand to Brazil. The farm's bounty includes the arrestingly colorful yet surprisingly mild dragon fruit, sweet lychees, and tart kumquats, as well as rarer fruits such as canistel and tamarind, which launch culinary odysseys free of Poseidon–related detours. Fresh Gardens offers tours of its spacious grounds replete with fruit trees as well as seasonal U-pick opportunities throughout the year.
