Our speaker this month is Alexander Salazar, owner of Tropical Acres Farms of Loxahatchee. Alex is also the horticultural manager of Sturrock Groves in West Palm Beach, specializing in mangoes, which have been grown on the Sturrock farm since the 1920’s. In addition, they grow many varieties of avocados, as well as banana, black sapote, carambola, guava, lychees, and sapodilla.
Mango season is rapidly coming to a close with late varieties, but now is a good time to decide what your next mango should be. Here’s our short list. And Alex’s.
If you want to learn how to grow the best mangoes, Alex is a great resource!
