A retired physician with an undergraduate degree in Botany, Stephen has a small urban farm just a mile from Naples Botanical Garden that is home to a collection of 600 fruit trees and 300 coffee trees. Stephen was one of the many local fruit enthusiasts featured in the documentary The Fruit Hunters (2012), which follows exotic fruit cultivators and preservationists from around the world. Stephen has traveled the world searching for new fruits and new varieties. He also sits on Naples Botanical Garden’s Collection Committee.
