Who we are
About Brooks Tropicals
In the early 1900s, Charlie Brooks and his son Dick started growing avocados, grapefruit, limes, and mangos in the subtropical climate just south of Miami.
In 1928, Dick rode inside a refrigerated truck filled with Florida avocados to NYC to make sure the fruit would arrive fresh. That opened up new markets for the farm.
In the 1960s, Pal Brooks followed his father into the farming business.
Today, Pal Brooks and Greg Smith keep farming in the family. Heading up operations that grow premium tropical fruits and vegetables throughout Florida, the Caribbean, Central, and South America.
This produce is then carefully packed and quickly shipped across the U.S. and Canada to arrive fresh to your markets.
Brooks Tropicals harvests more than 70% of what we sell.
We hope you enjoy, literally, the fruits of our labors.
