    Tastes of the Tropics - Robert is Here

    Tastes of the Tropics - Robert is Here

    Taste of the Tropics: Weird Fruits
    Deep in South Florida’s agricultural district in Homestead and the Redland, on the way to the southern entrance of Everglades National Park, you can’t miss the big fruit stand called Robert Is Here. Pull in and treat yourself to a key lime milkshake, local honey, maybe some guanabana, and a chat with Robert Moehling, who is behind the counter nearly every day, talking about tropical fruits.
    Robert Is Here started more than 50 years ago when he was a little boy selling his family’s cucumbers. Today, this family business is an institution, its cases heaped with stacks of tropical fruits and produce. They ship out exotic tropical fruits to those who can’t visit in person. Moehling knows pretty much everything about all tropical fruits, so we decided to talk with him about a few unusual – and delicious – tropical fruits you can find in South Florida.
    Weird fruits
    Jackfruit (Artocarpus heterophyllus)
    Dragonfruit, also known as pitaya
    White-fleshed (Hylocereus undatus) Red-fleshed (Hylocereus costaricensis or H. polyrhizus) Black sapote, also known as chocolate pudding fruit or chocolate persimmon (Diospyros nigra) Canistel, also known as eggfruit (Pouteria campechiana)
    Miracle fruit (Synsepalum dulcificum)
    Sugar apple, also known as sweetsop or custard apple (Annona squamosa)

    Mango Men Homestead

    Know Your Mango
    Known as the King of Fruits the world over, the mango (Mangifera indica) has been cultivated for thousands of years. Among the hundreds of varieties are fruits that are green, yellow, red, orange and deep purple; flesh that is pale yellow, deep orange, fibrous or silky smooth; and flavors that are sweet, tart, spicy or sour, sometimes tasting of coconut, lemon, orange or, well, mango.
    Tropical fruit expert Dr. Richard Campbell invites us into his kitchen to taste three mangos deeply rooted in history: Cambodiana, Chao Savoy and Cogshall and share tantalizing tales along the way. These three varieties are among the renowned mangos that Campbell and his three sons – Mango Men of Homestead
    https://www.facebook.com/mangomenhomestead/ – grow, sell and ship throughout the summer.
