Any farmers markets in Miami area with rare fruits?
« on: June 13, 2016, 11:54:41 PM »
Are there any farmers markets where rare fruits can be purchased? Not much may be in season in June admittedly.

Thanks, I'll check that out. Today I went to the fruit and spice park in Homestead where I was able to scrounge for fallen fruit which included malay apple. It was good but I've had better wax jambu. I also found a fallen purple caimito that had some insects in it but obly in parts. It was sweet but mild in flavor. I only took a tiny piece though, and of the clear part, to avoid bugs.

Per their recommendation I went to "Robert is Here" market and bought canistel, mamey apple and sapote, manzano bananas, and tasted spanish lime but found it impractical to eat.

That's the wynwood market on Saturdays.  Mango's are just coming into season and for sale in Palm Beach County. I haven't seen any yet in the redlands area...maybe next week. Pine island nursery was selling white sapote and sapodilla.

My Lychees are peaking right now. Pm me if you want them  fresh off the tree.
