The Mapro Garden is on the way to Panchgani from Mahabaleshwar. It is a popular halt for having snacks, strawberry milkshakes and icecreams and carrrying home strawberry jam (with real strawberries in it) and many other flavoured jams, crushes, squashes, syrups and jellies.
Also, fresh strawberries are sold across the sales counter.The snack bar, ice-cream parlour and the sales counter make it a must-halt. The 'Fresh strawberry with Cream and Icecream' is the best I've ever tasted. Visitors can taste all the products before buying them.
Visitors are invited for a 15 minute guided factory visit right here, to see how jams and squashes are made.
The Mapro Garden is full of beautiful flowers all around the place. One can easily spend a couple of hours here, and still craving to come back for more. There are signs all along the road from Mahabaleshwar, so you can't miss this one.
