Why We Bought 20 Blueberry Bushes

Miguel Soto Lisboa founded the Nebai Fruit Garden in 2002, at the Hoyamala Bariio in San Sebastian, on the 119 km road. 29. It features a small organic farm comprised of exotic fruit trees. Their goal is to provide each individual the ability to cultivate and harvest exotic fruits, and find the satisfaction and benefit of planting and consuming healthy and high quality foods.

Things To Do in Puerto Rico

Prior to the opening of the fruit garden, many of these types of produce we only available in grocery stores. Most were overpriced, and the selection was small. Miguel has 15 years of experience in growing and harvesting exotic fruits which typically cannot be found on the island of Puerto Rico. He has focused on specific genus of plants which perform surprisingly well in the Caribbean.

We asked Miguel why he loved the blueberry plant so much, and he told us that when he was younger his first job was on a blueberry farm. There, he picked blueberries and fell in love with fresh fruit and agriculture. His life path was forever changed in those moments, where he decided to make fresh and unique produce available within his local community in San Sebastian, Puerto Rico.

Miguel even has a number of spliced trees which feature combinations of fruit, such as a pear and apple tree merged into one!

We picked up 20 blueberry bushes for a farm which will soon be housing Karma Honey Project bees. Don't worry, we left a few for anyone else interested in visiting the garden for blueberries. It's an amazing feeling to be supporting local businesses and helping to spread the word about the cool things they're doing.

What is interesting to us, is that many farmers recently have expressed their interest in growing these types of delicious fruits on the island but have told us they have had difficulty doing so. So, we've been recommending the Nebai Fruit Garden to all local farmers and plant lovers alike, and look forward to purchasing more fruit trees from Miguel for our future farm.
