CultureFest 305: Tropical Fruit Farming Demonstration

11/14/2020 @ 3:00 pm 3:30 pm

LNB Grovestand and Edible South Florida bring you this truly unique virtual farm-to-table experience. Tour the LNB Groves second generation family farm with Marc, Adena, and Levi Ellenby as they discuss the variety of tropical fruits and plants they grow, such as sapodilla, mamey sapote, roselle, and starfruit. Watch as turmeric is dug from the ground and jackfruit is sliced open to create LNB Grovestand’s signature products of turmeric tonic and the colorful rainbow smoothie. Edible South Florida’s Gretchen Schmidt and Adena Ellenby discuss the history and culture of the farming community in the Redland and South Florida’s unique subtropical agriculture.
