Avocadoes and Other Local Produce on STT
Where's a good source to learn about the different varieties of Caribbean grown fruits and vegetables? The local spinach isn't the same spinach that's sold at Plaza, et al, so I would like a cheat sheet to help me identify local offerings so I can be more educated on what I'm buying. The Mango Melee on STX educated me on Julie Mangos, but I need something like that for other fruits!
The brownish red avocados are my FAVORITE...sweet and creamy
They're good but there are SO many variables in so many different kinds of veggies and fruits depending on where exactly they grow and in any particular season. You can have a bountiful crop of super tasty vegetables and fruits one or two years in a row and then go through a year with little to no production, and a taste variation even when you have a next good crop.
That's what makes local gardening so ever-challenging!
