The total overseas exports of agricultural produce and fruit in 1888 in the Port Douglas district was bananas 35,000 bunches valued at 4,125 pounds, 41 cases of sugar 51 pounds, 866 tons of sugar valued at 7,334 pounds produced by a few small farmers, 253 cases pineapple valued at 197 pounds, and 27 cases of passionfruit valued at 17 pounds, while there was only 5 or 6 cases of mangoes, even though it grew very well in the district. There was very little export of orange, limes or lemons with this fruit principally grown by Chinamen. There was also a little coffee grown on the Mossman at Dan Hart’s but apparently it made the locals ill.
