First Review by gwild

Expensive Fruit Stand! - Edit

I stopped here yesterday to see what all the hype was about and was very disappointed. I know it's a "must go to" spot for the tourist but I don't plan on ever returning. All the fruit is very very over priced (especially for being in homestead where a lot of fruit is grown). I bought four passion fruit and it cost me 13.75!!! I later went to another fruit stand further south and saw passion fruit there for only 3$ a pound rather then the 9$ that "Robert is here" was asking for.
Next I got the passion fruit smoothie. When you buy a smoothie there you have to add sugar,Splenda, or honey (I wasn't impressed with this either.) I asked for no sweetener and then proceeded to be asked by the man which one I wanted because I HAD to have one. Overall though the smoothie was good but cost 6.50$
Finally I saw the animals in the back. As a vegan who's agonist keeping wild animals in cages the disgusted me. The cages were smelly and dirty and it made me sad for the animals there. Not paying my money again to support this.
The only reason my review got 3 stars is because my smoothie was decent and my passion fruit were good. But if you are thinking of going here I recommend not buying produce. The staff also wasn't very helpful.

Pros: exotic produce, lots of fruit

Cons: expensive , staff isn't helpful

Tropical fruit stand - Edit


We made a visit to Robert is Here on Christmas Day. The place was packed!
We gathered a large number of fruits and Robert cut them up for us so we could try them. He also made sure the ones we had chosen were ripe enough.
My son loved trying miracle fruit. (A red berry) You eat everything but the seed and then everything you eat for the next hour tastes sweet. My son was thrilled to eat the fruit and then eat a lemon. We all tried it and indeed the lemon was almost like lemonade. He also loves starfruit and bought three beautiful ones.
We all loved the Kent mango as it was delicious and had no strings.
My daughters favorite was the husked coconut and the
guanabana (sour sop).
My favorite was the sapodilla which tasted like a pear pudding with brown sugar. Amazing.
My husbands favorite was the sour sop.
We liked the Mamey Sapote which tasted like baked sweet potato.
We really enjoyed trying new things and definitely plan to return.


Pros: Quality fruit, Friendly happy .service
