How many mango pictures and recipes have you seen on Facebook from your South Florida friends in the last few weeks? I’ve seen recipes for mango crisps, smoothies, cocktails, ceviche – you name it, I’ve seen it! Mangos are a staple in South Florida and a delicacy. So much so that Coral Gables’ Fairchild Tropical Botanical Garden has planned an entire weekend festival dedicated to this luscious fruit.
This year’s festival held on July 14-15 will be the 20th anniversary of the Mango Festival. There we be lectures on how to cook with mangos, how to care for mango trees and much more. Additionally there will be culinary tents and kids activities. The schedule is impressive! For more details, click here.
