Visiting Florida this weekend- any early Mango anywhere?
« on: April 29, 2022, 04:21:05 PM »
I am driving from Orlando to Homestead Sunday and was hoping a forum friend or orchard stand would have some early season Mango I can buy?
A friend shared some Edwards when I got into town,  so that got me on the early season hunt.

I harvested a bunch of Cherimoya to share with anyone that I link up with.

Any leads or invites are greatly appreciated. Thanks!

Truly Tropical in Delray Beach says they have mangos available, but they're only open Saturdays.  You could try contacting them to see if they could make an exception for you.  Also, from a video today Alex says he has mangos.  www.tropicalacresfarms.com  But only selling on his website at present for local pick-up.  He's not operating a fruit stand with regular hours yet.

Thanks very much John!
I put an order through on the website for pick up.
Will try to make it to truly tropical one day next week.
I am meeting up with a friend that has never had a real Mango before and those that have not tried the Florida Mangoís donít know how good life can be.
I came out to FL for a wedding and was bummed thinking it was going to be right before the season started so this is a pleasant surprise.

Congratulations to the happy couple and to the happy camper (you)!  We've haven't had much hot weather yet, believe it or not (I know this feels sweltering to you), so I hope these early mangos are sweet enough.
