Now in Season at The Fruit & Spice Park

Two fruits are simultaneously in season this June, and both are delicacies that we anxiously anticipate this time of year.
Mango and Lychee


The Mango (Mangifera indica) is arguably the most popular fruit in the world. Originating in South Asia, it has been cultivated for thousands of years. Trade and exploration have spread this fruit around the tropical world. Many are surprised to learn that there are hundreds, if not thousands, of named varieties grown around the world and the varieties cultivated reflect the local tastes and cuisine. The Fruit & Spice Park grows about 175 of these varieties, and for us the peak season usually runs from May through August.


The Lychee (Litchi chinensis) originates in Southern China, and has been cultivated there since at least 2000 BC. The bumpy skin of the fruit is red when ripe, and the crisp translucent flesh is sweet, tart, and has an incredible perfume. Best eaten fresh, some prefer them chilled. A truly ripe Lychee fruit (or ten, thanks very much!) is a most amazing sensory experience. Peak Lychee season overlaps Mango from June through August.

The Fruit & Spice Park is a 37-acre subtropical paradise nestled in the heart of the historic Redland community just 35 miles south of Miami. Surrounded by thousands of acres of tropical agriculture, the Park is a jewel in South Florida’s agricultural community attracting over 50,000 visitors a year to its gardens and festivals. More than 500 varieties of exotic fruits, herbs, spices and nuts from around the world; 180 varieties of mangos; 70 varieties of bamboo; 40 varieties of bananas; 15 varieties of jackfruit trees and numerous other exotic edibles are grown and maintained here.
