Robert is not going anywhere

Craving fresh, local South Florida produce? Get down to Homestead's famous fruit stand "Robert Is Here" and taste what everybody is talking about.
Founded in 1959 when Robert was only six years old, the sizable fruit stand has been adored by locals and tourists alike for decades. But what really sets this fruit stand apart from other local produce vendors is the diversity and variety of their stock: Not only will you find the South Florida staples of mango, oranges and Key limes, but you'll also find some more exotic wares -- ever tasted guayabana, dragon fruit or sugar apple?
"Robert Is Here" has them all.
Yet perhaps more famous than the produce are the milkshakes, with flavors ranging from the traditional strawberry to more exotic combinations -- dragon fruit, passion fruit, even Key lime. And judging by the incredible taste and the blistering Florida weather, it's no surprise that the milkshake line snakes all the way into the street on weekends.
"Robert is Here" is located at 19200 SW 344th St in South Florida's historic Homestead area.
