My Day of Discovery

Continuing in the mode of discovering things that I hadn't noticed before, I went to Bayview Park to check out the Key West Tropical Fruit Festival. Again, I was surprised to find things I didn't expect. There were about 18-20 booths, selling everything from tropical fruit plants to jewelry to hot dogs.

I already knew a little about mangoes and papayas (and anything your heart desires). But I had no idea how many different types of tropical fruit there are, from Akee to Ylang-ylang.

I didn't stay long. I haven't the time to learn much about tropical fruits, but I'm going to recommend to Janet that we look at getting a couple of plants that can be grown in pots. Maybe a table mango.
