Picking the sweetest Rambutan fresh from the CLSU-Dizon Farm!
After our Tina Decal’s Quezon tour, we went back to Tiaong last Saturday because we learned from my friend Diwat got raving reviews from her officemate about the Rambutan Festival in Tiaong, Quezon. Now, this gets me immediately interested since I’m starting to fell in love with Tiaong and San Pablo. I’m glad that we went and I wanted to share with my blog readers about this wonderful experience. Now, this only happens once a year during the first weekends of September and this was the second and last weekend already.
We are a small group this time because we are not sure what the rambutan festival is about. It costs P150/head which already includes the entrance to the farm, a packed adobo lunch, free eating of rambutan within the farm, and 1kg of rambutan as take home. It really looks like a great deal already so we decided to go. It is located along Maharlika (national road) hi-way just right after the Tiaong Market and even before reaching Ugu Bigyan’s Potter’s Garden. The signs are small and we actually missed it, so I posted a picture here so that you know the facade of the farm that you are looking for. You have to park your car outside the farm, along the highway. In the entrance, we were picked up by either a yellow jeep or a jeepney to go to the main house.
Some more information:
11 hectares farm owned by Atty. Victor P. Lazatin
The farm does not have a phone number but you can email the owner [email protected]
It only accomodates 200 people/day so it is best to go during the daytime
