Last September, Alex Salazar of Tropical Acres and manager of Sturrock Grove in West Palm Beach, spoke about mangoes to the club. He is returning to our club this time with some of his great mangoes for us to taste, and will be able to answer questions about the best varieties and how to grow them.
We will also be bringing more varieties from Trees n More and other nurseries and orchards so we have as many different great varieties as we can find this time of year. If you have any extra mangoes, bring some to share so we can all experience the diversity of mangoes.
If you want even more technical information about mangoes, Alex is also the featured speaker at another event the following Monday by the Martin County Master Gardeners, June 19th Blake Library, Stuart 6:00pm. The topic for that talk is The Challenge of Mangoes in South Florida.
If you don’t have any mangoes, it’s OK to bring something else for the tasting table.
Bring something interesting for the raffle table so as many people can go home with something as possible.
We will have our plant auction for club members. No more than 3 plants per member please.
