FTBG's NORIS LEDESMA TO ADDRESS MIAMI BEACH BOTANICAL GARDEN

Mango Madness!
Miami Beach Botanical Garden, June 6
10:00 am





The Miami Beach Botanical Garden welcomes Fairchild Tropical Garden's Dr. Noris Ledesma as a presenter on mango varieties of Florida and their heritage. She will also discuss the discoveries and findings of her research into different Mangifera species.



Fairchild’s fruit collections are the result of an intensive effort by the research scientists and horticulturists of Fairchild’s world renowned Tropical Fruit Program, and have been collected by going door to door, garden to garden and country to country, searching out the most outstanding selections of mangos found in the Americas, Africa and Southeast Asia. 



The 600 cultivated varieties of mangos embrace the cultures, flavors, textures, looks and dreams of the mango universe. Discover what more you can add in your personal collection.





This is a FREE lecture funded in part by the City of Miami Beach and Miami-Dade County.
