Edible plants for sale!

Mon, Apr 09, 2012 at 06:38:58 AM

In just a few days, the 33rd Annual Spring Plant Sale will take place at Fairchild Tropical Botanic Garden on April 14 & 15 during the Food & Garden Festival.  I will be posting some information about the plants that FTBG will be offering.

How would you like to have fresh black mulberries in your breakfast cereal or mulberry cobbler for an evening dessert?  Have you ever cooked steamed lemon grass crab legs or chicken satay with lemon grass?  Would you like to make creamy lemon grass ice cream? 

We will be selling black mulberry, Morus nigra, and lemon grass plants, Cymbopogon citratus, at the 33rd Annual Spring Plant Sale on April 14 & 15.
