Favorite summer tropical fruits include the mango, mamey, and anon (a sweet-apple).
If you don't know what these are, or on the other hand, if the thought of these makes your mouth water, then head out to the Redland Summer Fruit Festival on June 25, 2023, for a taste of these.
Fruit is the unofficial food of summer, because when it’s 95 degrees out with a gazillion percent humidity, pan con lechón doesn’t sound all that appetizing.
At the Redland Summer Fruit Festival at Fruit & Spice Park, you can kick off fruit season with a host of tropical delights. The annual event showcases the best stuff that grows on South Florida’s trees. From local wines to agriculture to the sampling of rare fruits to smoothies and more, it’s a smorgasbord of seasonal sweetness. In addition to the array of rainbow-hued plants, there’ll also be a kids’ area, where little ones can pet farm critters, ride ponies, and participate in a watermelon-eating contest. If you’re going to spend the summer in Miami, you might as well take advantage of the upsides.
Admission is $15 for adults and $8 for kids ages 6 through 11. Children 5 and younger get in free. You can get a 20% discount if you buy your tickets in advance online.
