Visiting this Homestead fruit stand, established by Robert Moehling in 1959 when he sold cucumbers street-side for his father, is a local tradition. Here, you can stock up on all manner of tropical fruits: papayas, sapote, jackfruit, avocado, as well as Kent and Keitt mangos (in season). In addition to offering tropical and citrus fruits and vegetables, the store stocks sweet, savory and spicy preserves and pickles as well as homemade salsas and sauces, and visitors. When you first arrive, make sure to order a key lime, guava, dragon fruit or passion fruit milkshake to sip as you roam the shelves or head outside to visit with the animals; Robert and his family keep emus, goats, geese, tortoises and donkeys, and even have a park for picnics and a splash fountain exhibit on the premises. Robert Is Here opens for the season in November and typically closes in late August.
