Pierre Marmonier’s The Fruit Garden is considered as one of the best fruit jam suppliers in Manila. I’m always happy to receive their fruit jams as a food gift every Christmas because it is something we can enjoy eating everyday. 🙂

I love the new Christmas flavor: Berry Dream, which has strawberries and blueberries with a violet flower aroma. It was nice to see Pierre demonstrating how he carefully creates each batch of fruit jam during the Ultimate Taste Test X in Rockwell.

I’m impressed with the consistency in quality, innovativeness of the flavors and quality of packaging he always produces every Christmas Season. Congratulations to Fruit Jam for being a Four-Time Ultimate Taste Test Winner!

The Story behind THE FRUIT GARDEN:

The Fruit Garden story started in October 2009 when, frustrated by the lack of good and constant supply of jam, Pierre and Andrea Marmonier decided to make their own and try their luck in a few bazaars. A French native, Pierre never ate commercial jam in his childhood and often helped his mum in summer time to cook jam with freshly picked fruits such as strawberry, raspberry, cherry, apricot. “…we will pick up the fruits in the morning and make the jam just after lunch time. The jam was then placed in our cellar and we will enjoy our freshly homemade jam every morning all year around.”

The Fruit Garden jam has up to 60% fruit content, while most of the commercial jams stick to the minimum 35% to be legally called “jam”. The Fruit Garden always innovates with unique and new flavors that are cooked in small batches in copper cauldrons.

For this 2012 festive season — and presented for the first time at UTT Rockwell 2.0 — two special flavors have been created:

Berry Dream, combining blueberry, strawberry and violet flower aroma

Tropical Paradise, combining passion fruit, mango and pineapple

These two flavors are bottled in the unique wave-shaped jars imported from Europe, and are beautifully packed in a gift box.

You can find The Fruit Garden jams at hotel lobby gourmet outlets at Dusit Thani, New World, Hyatt Manila, and at selected retail outlets: Bacchus Epicerie at Power Plant Mall, Market Deli on P. Leviste St. in Salcedo Village, Deli Boys in East Square building on Connecticut St. in San Juan.

  1. Hi, Anton how are you? Thanks for sharing this one. This is also a good one for Christmas gifts and other special occasions. The prices there are affordable compared here in USA. I love jams and preserves especially with bread or crackers.
