Desaru One Day Tour, Malaysia – Fruit Farm

December 7th, 2009 2 Commented

In the afternoon, we toured the 180 acres tropical fruit land, Desaru Fruit Farm. It is awarded the "Best Agro-Tourism Site" in Malaysia in the year of 2006.

Here, we learned about the Good Agricultural Practice (GAP), the Integrated Pest Management (IPM), collect information at the in-house Agriculture Gallery, and sit-in through an education bee keeping management.

I took some photos of the fruits along the tour before the sky started to fail on us — rain. The first few photos are of the dragon fruit. It is the fruit of several cactus species.

All of a sudden, it started to rain heavily. It was so disappointing as we missed out several other interesting tours, such as herbal and vegetable garden tour.

So, we went into the mushroom house and agricultural gallery. Here are some photos of the various mushroom species.

This is a photo of a sample bird’s nest. It is believed to be able to keep spiders away. How true it is? I’m not sure.

These are photos of some old charcoal stove and millstone used in the 50’s and 60’s.

Here are some facts on durian. It is widely known as the "king of fruits" in southeast Asia. The durian is distinctive for its large size, unique odor, and formidable thorn-covered husk.

We had buffet and fruits fiesta for lunch. Then, we attended the educational bee keeping management talk. Fortunately, the weather was pretty forgiving as it stopped raining after the talk and our fruit farm tour continued.

These fruits are called rose apple, a.k.a. jambu (in Malay).

I can’t remember the name of the following fruit and flower. Don’t mind dropping me a message if you know :)

Next, we visited the animal farm. It’s not very big and they’ve a small breed of animals. I took some photos of them before departing. If you notice, I only took photos of cute animals :)

These are the ducklings. It wasn’t easy to snap their photos as they were swimming here and there.

The rabbits were more calm and less active. They are very adorable.

These are the turkeys. Darn, they are ugly ;)

This is the ostrich. She is taller than any of us and she was so active that she kept moving and running around all the time. However, we managed to trick her by offering her some food and voilà, her photo at last.

Lastly, these are the two cute owls which I snapped three times to get this perfect shot, considering that I’m using my lousy digital camera.

Next, we were off to Ostrich Farm and I did some last shots of Desaru Fruit Farm from the coach.



Next post on Ostrich Farm & Lebam River is up.
