Fresh Fruit from the “Cubles Lady”

If you have ever driven north on Stringfellow road (the main drag) on Pine Island, you have probably seen the homemade neon signs near Cubles Drive.  If you follow the signs, you will soon find yourself on a dirt road in the middle of a fruit grove.  We don’t know her name (we affectionately call her the Cubles Lady), but the owner of the grove sells her fruits and veggies right from her porch.  Whatever was ready that morning will be for sale.  We’ve bought some of the best mangos, lychee, and oranges we’ve ever had from her.  Of course, arrive early for the best selection.  She often has fruit we’ve never heard of, and she will give you a sample if you are not sure whether you’ll like one of the more exotic fruits.
