Adding Value to Your Property
with Fruit Trees

While people relocate to Roatan and the tropics for many reasons, a common goal for many people is to live a slower, healthier life while connecting with the local environment.

A frequent request we receive from clients is for properties with mature fruit trees, not only do the trees provide environmental benefits and reduce runoff, but they also provide fresh, tropical, and exotic fruits right at your doorstep. Imagine a yard full of soursops, mangos, guavas, breadfruit, and bananas ready for your enjoyment.

We are very lucky in Roatan that you can grow a variety of fruit trees and even the smallest of spaces can become productive. As a property owner, it’s very easy to utilize entryways, and steep terrain and to plant along or around your property boundary lines, by utilizing unused space for fruit trees you can add real value to your property.

If you have any questions on what to plant or if you are looking to purchase fruit trees we recommend connecting with Lucas and Salome at BioPasion who have a wide range of trees and are actively involved in reforestation, food forest and regenerative agriculture programs in Roatan.
