Seasonally available tropical fruit that we grow:

Finger Limes – Often referred to as “caviar limes”, they can be used as a garnish or added to various recipes. Upon slicing the open, squeeze the husk with your fingers and the vesicles will pour out of the husk in tact. They have an authentic lime flavor, but with a subtle sweetness that pairs well with anything you would garnish with a dash of lime.


Rambutan – The rambutan, is a close relative of the lychee. It distinguishes itself from the lychee by its soft, red hairy rind. Sometimes, it is called the hairy lychee and it derives its name from the Malaysian word for hair, “rambut.” It is juicy and sweet like the lychee, but less acidic in flavor.



Lychee – Lychees originated in the subtropical low elevations of Southern China over 2000 years ago in the provinces of Kwangtung and Fukien. Once the skin has been easily peeled off, the translucent grape-like fruit is exposed.

Breadfruit (Ulu) – Ulu, as it is named in Hawaiian, was one of the few subsistence plants the Polynesians brought with them when they sailed to the Hawaiian Islands. Like the banana and plantain, the breadfruit may be eaten ripe as a fruit or underripe as a vegetable. For the latter purpose, it is picked while still starchy and is boiled or, in the traditional Pacific Island fashion, roasted in an underground oven on pre-heated rocks. Sometimes it is cored and stuffed with coconut before roasting. Malayans peel firm-ripe fruits, slice the pulp and fry it in sirup or palm sugar until it is crisp and brown. Filipinos enjoy the cooked fruit with coconut and sugar.
