Tasting the Tropics

July 6 @ 9:00 am 2:00 pm

Enjoy the Garden’s most fruitful season with this tasty festival!

Many of the world’s favorite fruits have subtropical or tropical origins. Our climate in Southwest Florida is well-suited for growing these sweet treats, and at the Garden, you can find fruiting plants growing in nearly all of our designed landscapes.

During this event, you can sample tropical fruits from around the world and discover some lesser-known fruiting plants grown in the Garden. Have you ever wondered how to open a coconut or jackfruit? Or wanted to know how to grow a pineapple? With more live demonstrations, special tours, and themed programs than ever before, you’ll have the opportunity to get the answers to these questions and more, all as you explore the tropical fruit plants of the Garden!

This event is included with Garden admission; free for members.
