We didn't actually make it to the dragon fruit farm but we did enjoy a tour of Redland Bay.

Give us some feedback won't you Joseph.

I visit Lou at Gemvale Estate today, local DF grower but still small scale, and he's agreed to come along to the next GV with some of his fruit for tasting and give a short talk.

We might be going to the dragon fruit farm at Tamborine Village tomorrow after the Redland Indigiscapes garden day.

All moot to me at the moment anyway, not likely to get to either of them any time soon.

Keen to hear about your visit though.

The website is supposed to be updated in March so there might be more address info. There's quite a difference between farms though. Red Fox don't specialise in hybrids and have some other varieties besides Dragon Fruit as we know them. The Tamborine folks only do hybrids. This may or may not be important. Red Fox supply Food Connect so they are non-certified organic, don't know about the Tamborine folk.

Sorry - checked google again and it's 2hrs 15mins from Strathpine. Not 3hrs.

Comment by Lissa on February 8, 2013 at 5:39

Red Fox's street address doesn't come up on Google maps either - you might want to make sure you have directions from Nanango before you head out there.

I would love to see what they have but it's a three hour drive to get out there from Strathpine. The Tamborine farm at 1hr15mins holds a bit more appeal.

Guessing about event timing. At the moment, the Red Fox Pitayas website is not up to date with events. Location and contact details are there though.
