The Exotic Fruit Tasting is a delicious way to sample unusual, and yummy exotic tropical fruits. Join an eco-certified tasting and orchard tour at Cape Trib Exotic Fruit Farm, at Cape Tribulation. This is a unique opportunity to taste a menu of ten rare tropical fruit, and learn how to prepare and eat all the different fruit. There is a guided walk through the orchard which has more than 2,000 fruit trees from the Amazon, Borneo and the Caribbean, and is managed as an organic permaculture. Exotic tropical fruits look and taste very different to apples and oranges - some are hairy, others have bumps or sharp spikes. Often the most unusual fruit turns out to be the most delicious with quirky names like 'chocolate pudding fruit', 'lemon meringue pie fruit' and 'creme caramel'. This is an ideal opportunity while travelling in tropical north Queensland to be adventurous and taste new flavours from tropical fruit that will never be seen in the capital cities - fruit such as abiu, black sapote, breadfruit, carambola, canistel, chempadek, durian, grumichama, and jaboticaba.
