The Charles F. Fuchs family arrived in South Florida to open a grocery store soon after 1900. Charles, Jr. started Holsum Bakery in Homestead in 1916, then moved the business to South Miami where the inticing aroma of fresh baked bread was a pleasant drive-by attraction from 1934-1980.
Charles and son Freddie Fuchs collected orchids, amassing large numbers and gaining experience in growing and propigating methods over the years.
Bob Fuchs is a third generation orchid grower and his highly respected operation, R. F. Orchids is one of the finest in the South.
Here you will find thousands of exotic orchids growing in a hammock like setting accented with gazebos, ponds, tiki huts and lush landscaping. The orchids are everywhere, with many of the finest on display at the entrance. Take your time looking around and dont be afraid to ask questions of the staff.
Theyre always winning awards for outstanding work in orchid breeding and growing. When you browse through the greenhouses, its easy to see why.
