We're a tropical fruit and flower farm located in Las Marķas, a small town on the western side of Puerto Rico. We are truly blessed with a year round tropical climate that allows us to grow both tropical and subtropical plant species from many parts of the world.
Hundreds of species of tropical fruit, nut, spice and flowering trees were planted here after December 1986, when we acquired the land. Some time after, we started adding beautiful Heliconia, Musa and Ginger species among the still small trees to provide them with some shade, to add color, and to attract birds and other wildlife. More flowering species were eventually planted to attract butterflies. Several palm species have been added in the past few years.
We're organic farmers, and our philosophy is based in love and respect towards ALL living creatures.
At the nursery, we carry a good selection of tropical fruit, nut and spice trees, heliconias, ornamental gingers, edible and ornamental bananas, palms and some orchids.
For many years we've given free lectures to school children and college students alike on tropical fruits and those that can be planted on the island, emphasizing on our own native fruits. It's been quite a pleasure to be able to inspire some members of the new generation (and older folks too), into planting fruit trees, organically growing different types of food plants, and doing everything possible to preserve the environment.
By next year, we plan to open the farm to the public once again, for scheduled visits of small groups of people during the rare fruit producing months of July, August and September. These would be great fruit-tasting experiences for everyone, especially children. We'll keep you posted on those.
For the moment, we're only accepting some visits per month, mostly from folks who come to pick up their pre-ordered plants and seeds. We strongly suggest you either call or email us first before arriving. Visits are exclusively by appointment only, and must be planned and scheduled ahead of time. You may call or email us first to make arrangements.
Thank you very much! We hope you enjoy our photo galleries of flowers and fruits as much as we do. Remember it's never too late to start planting!
Kind regards, and best of growing,
