"We learned how to sprinkle green mangos with chili salt to offset their sourness" "We discovered that slivers of fresh jackfruit taste like juicy-fruit gum, but with the texture of chicken"

Put simply, the sort of next level fruit knowledge, AND FLAVOR EXPERIENCE, that everyone deserves to gain on vacation in Hawaii.

This was such an amazing Experience for my boyfriend and I. This was our first time visiting the big Island and the fruit tasting was absolutely spectacular, also the tour was beautiful and they have such a beautiful farm and great people. So if you are looking for a fun experience on the big Island of Kona this is an amazing experience no matter where your staying in Kona.

This tour was a great way to start our Big Island adventures. We got to know so much about the vegetation that grows here in abundance. The tour guide was great, and Janelle was so warm and welcoming. I also tried Ulu here for the first time — I am now obsessed with it. Ulu and vegannaise... better than fries and ketchup for me now haha

If you are looking for a unique experience to learn, see, touch, and taste tropical fruits this is a must! Janelle and Carson are very sweet and knowledgeable. I highly recommend taking the tour if plants at all interest you!

The experience was fun and interesting but went quite a bit longer than stated (more than an hour past the stated end time). Although this wasn't a problem for us, several others had to leave, missing the remainder of the tour and the tasting portion.

Great time tasting local fruit right off the trees. Knowledgeable and friendly staff. Host was personable and insightful into the farm and lifestyle. Go visit the farm if you are in Hilo area.

This was a fantastic tour! The hosts were personable and very knowledgeable about the land, vegetation, and fruits. Everything was extremely fresh and delicious! I learned a lot in the short time there and tasted a ton of new fruits that I'd never even heard of.
