If you’re craving for any fruit, you will likely find it in the fruit stalls of Tupi Fruit Park from the most common fruits ever known in the entire Philippines to its exotic fruits. Choose among all sorts of fruits such as pineapples, passion fruit, bananas, avocadoes, mangoes, mangosteen, lanzones, guavas, rambutans, jackfruits, santol, and durians. The wide array of fruit selection in the stalls attest to the booming agriculture of South Cotabato. Aside from grabing some “pasalubong” finds that you can bring back home, enjoy the landscape and take some photos of Mt. Matutum located just behind the Fruit Park.
It is a steep volcano that stands 7,500 ft and dominates the landscape of General Santos. And because of its popularity to hikers and mountain climbers, Mt. Matutum was proclaimed as an ecotourism site by the local government. The surrounding area of Mt. Matutum is also an ideal site for pineapple plantation, where General Santos is also known for.
