September 13, 2014  – Coral Gables, Florida
Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden will once again celebrate one of the most intriguing of tropical fruits, the jackfruit. Participants will learn about its enticing taste and curious fragrance, how to grow it, and what varieties most suit differing tastes.  We will have recognized speakers presenting information on planting and pruning, pollination and the variety of cultivars available in South Florida. Tree sales and cultivar tasting follows the presentations.  Tropical Fruit Program volunteers clean and evaluate jackfruit during the jackfruit season. Flesh from each cultivar is carefully labeled and frozen for sampling. Following the ‘Just Jackfruit’ lectures participants will taste fruit from a wide range of flavors.  (Jackfruit Facts & Photos)
