Welcome to Penang Tropical Fruit Farm. We have South East Asia’s largest collection of fruits with an active area that spans a sprawling 25 acres located in the North West of Penang, Malaysia. With over 200 species of edible fruits identified, we aim to promote the amazing flora of Malaysia through education and information.
Tropical Fruit Farm is situated about 800ft above sea level on the hilly terrains of Teluk Bahang in Penang. It is an ideal location for cultivating many types of tropical and sub-tropical fruit trees. The orchard was developed back in 1993 with a few objectives in mind.
Firstly, to conserve rare and exotic fruit trees. Secondly, to educate and promote to the locals as well as foreigners of the gift that our land is blessed with. Lastly, to play a positive role towards agriculture and eco/agro tourism amid the intensive development in our state’s rural areas.
Over the years, the orchard has acquired many rare and exotic fruit trees from the region as well as from far-flung corners of the globe such as Central and South America, Central Africa, India, the Middle East, the Caribbean, the Pacific Islands etc. Today the orchard boasts of a collection of over 200 different species and the list is still growing.
The farm endeavours to use only organic fertilisers. Some of which are processed in the farm using fruit waste collected from around the farm. Chemicals are only used when absolutely necessary. In the farm, our aim is to work towards a cleaner environment for the future.
Apart from viewing the fruits, you will be able to enjoy the varieties of fruits (minimum 15 types!) when you join one of our Guided Farm Tours. The orchard also prepares light snacks, juices and a specially prepared buffet spread for pre-booked groups.
