SPECIAL TOUR : Okinawa Prefecture Central wholesale market

沖縄県中央卸売市場の見学
日本熱帯果樹協会沖縄支部の非公式行事として、果樹生産者の会員を対象とした卸売市場の見学会が催されました。
朝の6時から、市場内の果樹類の様子やせりの様子を、関係者の説明のもと見て回り、22トンも入荷したマンゴー競り場や、冷凍倉庫でもその機能の説明がありました。
見学終了後は、場所を移してレアーな果物や、市場の裏話や、今後農家に作って欲しい有望な果物の話が、画像を交えて聞けた貴重な見学会でした。
催して下さった関係者の方に、厚く御礼申し上げます。

MANGO ON THE MENU : 23RD FTBG MANGO FESTIVAL (MIAMI MANGO BRUNCH) REVIEW

Miami Mango Brunch Review



BY JAMES BOLDUC // JULY 19, 2015 











Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden has a majestic feel to it. The entrance is located right off of Old Cutler Road where the beautiful giant Banyan Trees offer shade as you drive down this historic road. 

Though the Miami summer heat was scorching and the infamous South Florida humidity was in full effect there was ample relief. You can easily find some shade with the abundance of exotic plants and trees that constitute Fairchild Tropical Garden


Thankfully the Miami Mango Brunch is held indoors and the air conditioning is plentiful! Miami Mango Brunch at Fairchild Tropical Garden had an All-Star Lineup of chefs serving up some of their favorite mango inspired dishes.
