He started out with a little card table, a few cucumbers and a sign proclaiming Robert Is Here” and now, more than 50 years later, the world has beat a path to Robert Moehling’s door.
This may be the best tropical fruit stand in the world.
You cant get to the southern entrance of Everglades National Park without passing this world famous roadside attraction. Stopping here to admire the cornucopia of genuine Florida goodies is a right of passage for those that make the trek from down the street or half way around the world.
The tropical fruit milkshakes, the flavored honeys, the incredible selection of jams and jellies, the completely unique and original sauces, the fresh produce, the most extensive selection of exotic fruits and vegetables... is all here. Perhaps a bit overwhelming at first, take your time browsing the shelves to appreciate the depth and breadth of Roberts copious offerings, then load up on all your favorites.
You might have to stand in line to get one, but I'd say the key lime milkshake here is well worth the wait.
In addition to citrus fruits like oranges, grapefruit, tangelos and tangerines, Robert sells more than twenty other fruits. Depending on the time of year you may find anon (sugar apple), atemoya, avocado, canestel (egg fruit), carambola (star fruit), Florida sweet onions, kumquat, key lime, lime, longan, lychee, mamey, mango, monstera, papaya, passion fruit, sapodilla, sapote (black), strawberries, sugar cane, tamarind and water coconut.
Out back of the fruit stand, Robert features his own little zoo of sorts, including emus, donkeys, goats, parrots, honeybees, chickens, geese and tortoises. On the weekends, they feature live music and have a few antique cars and tractors on display.
