The 23rd Annual International Mango Festival started this Saturday at Fairchild Tropical Garden. This is a pilgrimage site for mango worshippers. You can find all things mango here, including what is probably the largest display of mango cultivars from all over the world. It is truly impressive. There are also cooking and baking classes; mango-related cuisine & products; mango tastings; mango trees for sale; lectures and workshops. I attended lectures by Horticulturalists Dr. Richard Campbell, Dr. Noris Ledesma and Jeff Wasielewski. I also purchased a new Fruit Picker and a small mango tree (Rosigold variety) for a friend. If you’re in South Florida, come on over on Sunday if you can. If you’re not, please eat a mango in unity with those of us who are celebrating the delectable king of tropical fruits this weekend.
