In the Grove

Because of the warm winter etc, many of our mango varieties have had two or three blooms.  We hope to get multiple crops from Cogshall, Glenn, Valencia Pride, Lemon Meringue (PPK), Keitt, Carrie, Duncan, Tess Pollock and Pim Seng Mun.

Tomorrow we will have a decent amount of Carrie for sale.  Cogshall, Glenn, Pim Seng Mun, Haden and Florigon continue to be very strong. We will have a few Julie and Edward.  Numbers of Nam Doc Mai and Bailey's Marvel are increasing.  Several new customers were very impressed with Tess Pollock, and lots of people bought Stringies.
We don't know in advance how many varieties will be available on any given day, but until sometime in July we will have more than ten varieties.  In June we often have more than thirty varieties available on the same day.

Also, for those who would like to find out more about tropical fruit, I recommend the Palm Beach chapter of the Rare Fruit Council.  The club meets once a month at Mounts Botanical Garden in West Palm Beach.  The meetings are open to all and include a tasting table after an informative presentation.
