These orchards are open to tourists mainly to visit, experience the feeling of seeing the milkweed tree firsthand and pick it up and bring it home as a gift. However, the quality of the breast milk is still carefully managed and cared for by the gardener, reaching the same standard as the take-out products on the market.

However, we still make sure to keep the fruit on the tree to create a landscape for visitors. as well as the experience of hand-picking and bringing back. Because everyone when they come here, everyone wants to see the fruit garden, not picking them all and collecting entrance fees,” said Uncle Chin, owner of 9 Hong garden. . That is also one of the reasons why this fruit garden is famous for tourists from all over the world, not only in the breast milk season but also in other fruit seasons such as mulberry, rambutan, longan, etc.

Purple milk this year is extremely good season. And although they are not as sweet as white breast milk, their thin shell and thick rice make them very popular with many people.

When buying and taking home, you will be provided with a foam box and carefully lined by the gardener to help the milkweed fruit go away and not be damaged during the move.

According to the psychology of many people, coming to this garden is mainly to see and experience the fruit garden of the West. And if you buy it to take home, it’s best to go to the market because the fruit is delicious, the good fruit has been picked and sold by the gardener, not leaving the garden to do anything.

However, according to observations, the fruit quality of Rach Ke and 9 Hong gardens are quite good. At the time we came, it was in the middle of the season, the tree was always full of both ripe and still green fruits. But as a fruit, there will also be changes depending on the time, so it is advisable to limit coming at the beginning or the end of the season.

Breast milk is currently being sold at the garden at the price of 25k/kg, so choose to buy the still green fruits if your travel time is long, or choose the ripe ones if you want to enjoy them right at the garden.
