Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden will once again celebrate the mango at the 21st Annual International Mango Festival. Over the two days of the festivities, they will celebrate the mango as an object of beauty and admiration, a subsistence crop for the people and as a niche and mainstream commercial fruit of the future. Mango experts and enthusiasts of the world will gather at Fairchild for formal learning in the Grower’s Summit 2013, which will deliver specific recommendations on varieties and directions for growing the mango in the Americas. Two full days of mango festivities will feature a wide range of products, ideas and of course the star of the show, the mango itself in all its glory. Mangos have been collected from the far reaches of the globe and nurtured in South Florida, following in the footsteps of David Fairchild, the most venerable mango collector of them all. Mangos in every culinary creation, work of art and on every flat surface.
