Tropical Fruit in Exuma?
« on: April 11, 2021, 11:03:34 PM »
My family is going to Georgetown, Bahamas this summer to visit some friends. I want to see some orchards or sample some local fruits that we may not have back home. I'm not finding any information online; does anyone know of any nurseries, farmer's markets, or farms on Exuma (preferably near Georgetown) that we could go to? Thanks.

Exuma is long and narrow.  I'd be surprsed if there was a plant nursery there, but one never knows.

It might be useful to contact the Tourist Bureau in Nassau and ask.

Meanwhile to get a sense for what fruits you are likely to encounter in Bahamian gardens see if you can find a copy of
