Got dragon fruit? It’s a lot more common now in Tagaytay, and if you have no idea how to eat this, here’s how: You know it’s ripe enough for eating when it’s still firm but gives with a gentle squeeze.
Slice it lengthwise in half, then scoop out the fleshy part with a spoon. The skin isn’t for eating, so toss that out of the way!
This weekend, you might want to load up on fresh fruits and veggies while you’re in Tagaytay. Check out this haul of organic vegetables from @vemacaspac– a bountiful harvest of leafy greens, cucumber, and string beans! ????????????
Not just a hub for local tourism and destination weddings, Metro Tagaytay is also a massive food hub, with farms of all kinds in and around the neighborhood. So if you want to get your fresh produce straight from the source, this is the place to be!
Tarragon is an aromatic herb that thrives in the cool uplands Cavite weather of Tagaytay. Cultivated mainly as a culinary herb, tarragon also has a number of medicinal properties and health benefits.
There are a lot of resources found online on just about anything you need to know about tarragon, as well as books on herb gardening and haute cuisine that mention this popular perennial herb.
We’ve gone so far as to compile some of the more essential items here on Tagaytay Living, so here are 11 things you need to know about tarragon.
If you’re a total noob at gardening (but you’d want to start growing food anyway), one of the easiest fruits (yes, tomatoes are fruits!) to grow is the humble tomato.
Plant them deep, let them enjoy plenty of sunshine, and reinforce them with a trellis, a cage, or a stake to the ground.
Experience the joys of Tagaytay country living: we got fresh air, cooler weather, plenty of wide open spaces, and lots of opportunities to do some gardening, or start your own farm!
Buhay probinsya, or provincial living, used to bring with it thoughts of being in a backwater town cut off from civilization. While that may sometimes be the case, the beauty of the Tagaytay country lifestyle is that you can enjoy all the perks of being removed from the crazy city lifestyle, but still well within reach of modern-day conveniences.
So yeah, you can have your rustic vacation home in the middle of an organic farm (any farm you like, really), and you can wire up your piece of the Tagaytay countryside with (fairly) stable internet, have solar panels, have hot water and air-conditioning installed, and even sign up for Netflix if you’re so inclined.
Heck, Makati or BGC is just an hour and forty minutes away if you need to get some errands done.
Some Tagaytay country guesthouses make for a great alternative to a traditional hotel stay.
Nana’s Farm Tagaytay in Amadeo, Cavite is one such place. Based just outside Tagaytay City along Tagaytay-Amadeo Road, the highly-recommended Airbnb rental property allows you to have the entire place to yourself, with boardgames, Netflix, and strong wifi.
Nana’s Farm also has a breakfast option available that has longaniza breakfast sausages, omelette, fried rice, fresh fruits, and fresh coffee good for two.
Visit Nana’s Farm Tagaytay on Airbnb (link provided below) for more property details and reviews, and for reservations and bookings.
