    Planting Hawaiian Sweet Potatoes

    It was a successful farm day for Miami Fruit!ย

    We woke up at 6:30 am to catch a ride to the farm with Rane's dad.ย

    We got to the farm right before it started to heat up, and got to work weeding some overgrown garden beds.ย

    After spending a little time out on the farm, we met up with our new vegan friend Tabby, she's interested in farming, and about to graduate from the University of Florida with an environmental science degree.

    We quickly went to work weeding more beds and planting turmeric and sweet potatoes!

    Miami Fruit also has some exiting news! We met a tropical fruit farmer who is able to get fresh mangosteen and rambutan imported from Guatemala, and fresh durian from Thailand.ย We only ship what is grown in South Florida currently, however, if any of our customers are interested in purchasing any of these fruits, please let us know! We would love to be able to supply people with their favorite exotic fruits.ย

    Mangos are one of Rane and Edelle's favorite fruits, unfortunately they are both extremely allergic to the sap! If either of us touch the skin, we break out in an itchy rash on our mouths called mango mouth, it can even spread to other parts of our bodies.

    Luckily we have John to help us pick mangos, he's been helping us harvest, sell fruit, and driving us around since we have been having car problems, Miami Fruit is very thankful to have him.

    We were surprised to find a few trees had some ripe mamey, the pace variety to be specific, and even some sapodilla! We sent a few mamey and sapodilla out in this week's variety boxes, but we most likely won't have any more to ship next week.
