Wildwood began 25 years ago as the dream of an exotic fruit farm. In 1986 our predecessors decided to transform abandoned grazing land into an organic orchard and spent the next decade collecting seed from around the world and planting more than 100 different species and 2,000 fruit trees from the Amazon, South East Asia and the Caribbean.
Some fruit is also grown near the coast in central Queensland, south east Queensland and northern New South Wales. Background: Research into nutrient content, phytochemical content and potential health benefits of tropical exotics has traditionally been far less than the work done on temperate fruits. There is also little known about how Australian grown fruit compare with that of fruit grown.
As Queensland is a huge provider of fruit and vegetables in Australia (over 120 different varieties are grown, and the region supplies about a third of all the fruit and veggies in Australia), you will usually find a good selection of jobs all year around, as the fruit does not only have to be picked, but the orchards also have to be taken care of during the other seasons, e.g. there are jobs.
The tropical fruit orchard contains hundreds of tropical and subtropical fruit trees and Josh and Zoe have developed it into a popular destination for touring companies. Targeted as a winery with a difference, visitors can stroll through the tropical fruit orchard and sample exotic fruits and fruit wines.
Tropical and Subtropical. Tropical and subtropical fruits, in contrast with temperate fruits, can be broadly defined as those meeting all of the following criteria: crops that have their origin and commercial growing areas (when such exist) in the tropics or subtropics, plants that are evergreen and perennial, crops with a limited degree of frost resistance, and plants whose growth is.
