Has anyone made this kit? I have searched hi and low and cannot find out what the fruit taste is in the cornucopia kit?

As you know I just started making this kit and so I am just as curious to know.

This isn't exactly the same kit, but I found this info on the Paklab site:

There's a good chance it is the same recipe.

You did better than me, I could not even find a website for them.
I am now wondering if they me grapes or grapefruit the citrus (which would be strange)? I may go ahead and order it. I did find one reference that said it tasted like apple juice and that seemed strange because apples are not considered tropical (at least here in the states)

If you are addressing the question to me, then the answer is no, this is my first.
The Cornucopia kits get good reviews on Amazon, FWIW.

I have made many of them and we love them. Some I have made a couple of times. I always bump up the sugar by 4 to 5 pounds (1.080 to 1.085 so they are not so sweet) for fermenting.
