When I saw someone shared on Facebook about places of interest at Port Dickson, this particular picture of a colorful sky ladder has caught my attention. Hence I google about the location.
I decided to bring my family there for a short trip over the weekend.
This place is located at Kampung Sri Parit Lukut, Port Dickson.
Relying solely on Google Map or Waze navigation, we wasn’t sure how the route supposed to be. We got a little hesitation when it lead us this road. LOL! However, we braved it up and drove all they way there……………….
It was really sunny. The kind and friendly, Mr. Yap offered to drove us around the farm instead of us walking uphill. Mr. Yap is also one of the partner of this farm. Furthermore he also gave some briefing about the pineapple plantation, also the cycle of planting and harvesting.
Pineapples are widely grown here spanning the area of 5 acre land. What we are seeing here are mainly Moris Pineapple. That’s because Moris is well known for its sweetness and crunchiness. Mr. Yap also mentioned that in future they will consider the plant MD2. Apparently MD2 is known for its exceptional sweetness, golden yellow flesh, consistency in size and ripeness.
Pineapples grow well in warm climates and it is one of the popular fruits all over the world because of its pleasant taste and smell. Moreover pineapple is a good source of Vitamin A and B and fairly rich in Vitamin C. It is also source Bromelain, a digestive enzyme, which helps to digest food by breaking down protein.
Unfortunately we couldn’t get to see any pineapple fruits at the moment. Mr. Yap told that by another 2+ months, they should be expecting fruits. During the harvesting period, they could fetch up to 6000 pieces of pineapples.
School holidays will be coming soon in a week time. Many of us will be avoiding traveling overseas during this period of time. However you can still plan to travel local by road or to fill up this school break with some activities.
Put aside gadgets and television. Why not bring the urban kids to a farm?
Farms are educational playgrounds. By visiting a farm they can see where and how they get their foods. Furthermore, taking children to the farm gave them a better understanding on how plants are grown.
