Tropical Fruit Farm which is situated at about 800ft above sea level on the hilly terrain of Teluk Bahang, Penang is an ideal location for cultivating many types of tropical and sub-tropical fruit trees. The orchard covers 25 acres and it was developed back in 1993 with a few objectives in mind. First of all, to conserve the rare and exotic fruit trees. Secondly, to educate and promote to the locals as well as foreigners on the gift that our land is blessed with and lastly, to make a positive role towards agriculture and eco / agro tourism amid the intensive development in our state’s rural areas.
Over the years, the orchard has acquired many rare and exotic fruit trees from the region as well as from far-flung corners of the globe such as Central and South America, Central Africa, India, the Middle East, the Caribbean’s, the Pacific Islands etc. Today the orchard boasts of a collection of over 200 different species and the list is still growing.
Apart from viewing the fruits of course there would be sampling of the variety of flavors that is unique to each individual fruit. The orchard also prepares light snacks, juices and a hefty BBQ buffet spread on the weekends and public holidays.
