Exotic fruit tasting tour at the Cape Trib Exotic Fruit Farm
After many years of running the exotic fruit tasting
tours at Cape Tribulation Digby and Alison have sold the farm and
B&B guests at Rainforest Hideaway are lucky, as
they still get to taste the wonderful fruits here at breakfast.
We scour the north Queensland markets where local farmers come to
sell their produce and our breakfast feature such fruits as soursops,
custard apples, rambutans, mangosteens, salaks, chocolate pudding
fruit, and carambolas.
Some of these fruit are starting to appear in markets
- but many will never appear in the big cities, as they are too fragile
to transport. They simply have to be eaten where they are grown, fresh
from the tree.
Some of the exotic fruits that will tantalize your tastebuds at the
North Queensland's subtropical climate is excellent
for fruit trees from all parts of the world.
Digby and Alison at the Cape Trib Exotic Fruit Farm have been gradually
expanding their collection of trees for many years.

Exotic tropical fruit comes in all shapes and sizes
- some are hairy, others have lumps and bumps or sharp spikes. Often
the most unusual fruit turns out to be the most delicious.
