1. Tropical Fruit. That is not a grapefruit. And the little fruit has some white liquid that they once made chiclet gum out of -- Sticky, don't drink it.
2. A flowering tree. forgot the name.
7. Lychee trees on a two acre farm.
10. Mango grove all those flowers, Mangoes. This farmer cuts out the middle of the tree so it can get more sun. He also leaves room in between the trees so they can get sun. He said to keep them at about 12 feet to make them healthy.
Okay there you have it. My tour. The farmers were concerned for the future of farming in Miami Dade County. People are moving in and you need lots of farms to survive. Sprawl and farming don't mix. If you want to comment on a specific photo with information, use the numbers. I love farmers. County Commissioner Daniella Levine Cava has been out here but not the Mayor. Mayor Gimenez get to these farms!!!
Let's buy one of them a new cherry picker. The old one was dying. He used to just pull down the branches to pick them. These farmers work hard. Make sure you read the comments for real information. I am just an observer, and a bad listener.
One farmer said if we don't preserve the UDB farming in South Miami Dade will be over. Please say it ain't so. Commissioner Zapata are you listening?
