Rooty Tooty Fresh and Fruity

Over the years, your relationship with nature’s candy, also known as fruit, has been one of trickery and fraud. You’ve discovered that beans are not the only musical fruit, and after sinking your teeth into that wax apple last year, you just don’t know what to believe anymore. Lucky for you, Miami Beach Botanical Garden is hosting A Taste of Tropical Fruit, a day of lectures, demos, food, and art dedicated to delicious produce.

Though you might not get to the bottom of the legendary apples-and-oranges comparison, you will walk away more informed about the intricacies of mangoes, papayas, and other eats native to South Florida. In addition to a fruit-inspired art exhibit, the Garden will feature samplings of cocktails, ice creams, and other foods made with tropical delights today.
Sat., June 2, 10 a.m.-2 p.m.
