FGM weekend fruit haul
« on: March 19, 2012, 08:27:53 PM »
Sapodillas and Jaboticabas...that's what I was able to find this weekend.   The Jabos were grown by my friend George in Parkland.  He picked over 200 lbs on Thursday and sold them all by Saturday.   Not bad from eight trees. He has a total of 40 Jabos on his property but the oldest and biggest produce the most.  The Sapodillas were grown by Erickson Farms. They are a commercial fruit farm with lots of tropicals including Sapodilla, Lychees and over 1000 mature mango trees.

Nice hall. I have been feasting on Tikal saps lately.

Amazingly enough there is a famous drummer named Jabo Startkes. Named after the jaboticaba. He played with James Brown.
