Kenari Groves Jackfruit, Loxahatchee, Fla. CLOSED

Loxahatchee, Fla.—Kenari Groves has been growing tropical fruit since 1997. Owner, Rose Khin grows several different types of sub-tropical fruit that ripen year round. These include jackfruit, the flavor behind juicy fruit gum, which can grow as large as 100 pounds. But for Khin her biggest was 82 pounds in 2008.

This does not mean you have to buy such a big fruit because they grow all sizes of jackfruit along with sapodilla, mangoes, lychee, longan, star fruit and more.

However, Kenari Grove does not ship their fruit or deliver so if you want one of their tasty jackfruit you'll have to book an appointment and travel to their large grove in Loxahatchee, Fla. 

There is a silver lining to this style of sourcing. The price per pound will be lower that at markets and the fruit will be a lot fresher.

"I pick it right from the tree for you. Only when people come, I cut," she said with a smile during a recent visit.

She will also help you learn ways to store the fruit. If you are not satisfied she will replace it.

You'll need to call to find out what other fruits she grows and find out about prices.

Her phone number is (561) 313-7202
