Robert Is Here Inc., Homestead, Fla.: Wow Fruit
Homestead, Fla.—Robert Is Here is an extraordinary slice of old Florida hospitality. Founded in 1959, this fruit stand has everything from locally grown tropical fruit to vegetables. It also has an extensive assortment of jams, jellies and other food items. It is approximately a 30-minute drive south of Miami, Fla.
During certain times of the year the stand has milk shakes made with strawberries, key limes or other in-season fruit.
I went this past March and got served by Robert, the owner. He had a cheery smile and personality.
I bought some locally grown passion fruit at $9.95/lb. and a slice of locally grown, caramel tasting, Mamey Sapote at $3.50/lb.
Robert Is Here is a great place to visit for locally grown tropical fruit. But don’t feel you are missing out if you don’t live locally because you can get their produce shipped to your door.
