Jackfruit and canistel and mangosteen, oh my

Even if you’ve lived in Miami your entire life, Robert is Here has a selection of tropical fruits you may never have heard of before — and milkshakes worth adventuring into Homestead for.

If you hop off the 35 or 344 bus at S. Redland Rd. And W. Palm Dr., you’ll find Robert is Here is just a 5-minute walk away. Robert’s been “here,” selling locally grown fruits, vegetables, and milkshakes since he was six years old. Let Robert cool you down with a fresh fruit shake or a tidal wave of information about tropical fruits — like this little tip about passion fruit: When picking passion fruit, the uglier the fruit, the sweeter it is.
