TREC Mango Bonanza

     I was at TREC Tropical Research and Education Center (University of Florida)  in Homestead, Tuesday with my friend Michelle. Our friend Ian gave us a tour of the grounds and fruit tree collections. He also sent us home with a few mangoes, heh-he. You WON'T find these varieties at Publix; I hate those bland things! There are many mango cultivars to choose from each unique in flavor. I recommend you try them all. Fairchild has their Mango fest on July 9, 2011 Mango Festival at Fairchild they have an extensive tasting table where you can explore all the different flavors mangoes have to offer.....They also sell trees, chutneys and jams etc. If your in the area do yourself a favor and stop in.
