Picture Sunday: A Winter Harvest in Florida

Root Simple reader Noel Ramos sent the picture above of some local fruit grown in Florida to remind us that winter gardening is big there too. Noel grows over 500lbs of fruit and veggies every year on a quarter acre city lot. In the picture:

Canistel, Rollinia, red navels, Ruby Red Grapefruit, Carambola, pineapple, sapodilla, sugar apple, dwarf Cavendish bananas, ambarella, jaboticaba, jackfruit flowers, papaya, lemon and red palm fruits (inedible).

  1. Beautiful! I had the most delicious slice of a mystery (to me) tropical fruit in Bradenton, FL, 13 years ago–at a catered event at a hotel. I have never been able to find out or figure out what it was. I am still looking…

  4. Just love it. The palm tree fruits are actually edible. They are very good for people with joint inflammation but they must be eaten when they are still green. In Mauritius, we use carambola in rum, we also make jams and pickles with it. It’s really great to see those cause here we’re actually losing lots of the fruits our parent and grand parent used to eat. People just plant a mango tree when they do bother to put something in their garden.
