The Desaru Fruit Farm invites you to a vibrant world of fruity wonders in Malaysia. With lush orchards, exotic fruits, and immersive activities, it’s a journey that will truly tantalise the senses.
Planning Your Visit
This attraction can be found in Kota Tinggi Johor and is around 60 km from the Johor Bahru city centre. Those staying at beachside resorts or have bought a residence at properties like Anantara Desaru Coast Residences will find this site within an easy 20-minute drive away. The fruit farm is generally open from around 9:00am to 6:00pm; look to get there a bit early to avoid the noontime sun.
What to Expect
Set amidst 180 acres and home to over 100 varieties of seasonal and non-seasonal fruits, there is much to enjoy at the Fruit Farm in Desaru Malaysia. Attractions like these are ideal for the whole family and you can look to take a guided tour of the orchards; you will even get the chance to taste fresh fruit like honey orange, jackfruit and durian which has a rather distinct smell and taste. There’s also an herbal & vegetable garden where you will learn about identifying and using herbs as well.
Of course, no trip would be complete without savouring a fruity feast! Apart from the tastings on offer during the tour, you can look to savour more fresh produce during your visit. Amongst the available options is a fruit buffet with a range of produce to choose from such as watermelon, dragon fruit, mangosteen, rose apple, guava, pineapple, banana, papaya and more. You can also try dishes infused with fruit, while there’s a mini-mart where you can purchase fruit to take back with you as well.
Apart from fruit-related attractions, there is plenty more to look forward to including some of the most fun things to do in Desaru. Amongst these are activities like paintballing and going on ATV rides which are great to enjoy with family and friends. Kids are also bound to love the petting zoo where they can get up close to animals like rabbits and goats which they can feed too. Also of interest is a pond with koi fish that can be fed, the Agricultural Gallery where you can find out about bio-farming and a session on beekeeping and honey.
