Pantin Mamey Sapote
The Pantin mamey sapote is a unique, tropical tree fruit with an interior texture that is creamy and sweet. The flavor of its salmon colored flesh is like sweet potato and pumpkin with undertones of almond, chocolate, honey, and vanilla. Native to Central America, the Pantin variety grows well only in the climate of South Florida and nowhere else in the continental United States. It is very important to the Latino community in South Florida yet the small local farms that grow it are under siege from land development, land prices and hurricanes.
We now have a 5-acre farm we are developing in Homestead, to grow more veggies for South Florida! We began as urban gardeners, aspiring to be urban homesteaders, in 2008. We still sell surplus garden produce as it becomes available, so you can eat fresh, just-picked local fruits and veggies, grown without poisons! (more...)
We are please to be hosting "Taste of the Tropics" the last weekend of the month through the summer. We offer free space to vendors to be able to have a nice variety of individuals participate. I always start with a theme, like July was supposed to be "Mangoes!", however once the vendors start calling it seems to take a direction of it's own. (more...)
