Here is my first update for 2004. I have been busy shooting the winter season tropical fruit crops here at TREC. The carambola (star fruit) collection is loaded and other unusual tropical fruits like canistel (egg fruit), green sapote, sapodilla, loquat, akee, mamey, soursop, and tamrind are displaying their fruits as well. Each day during January has been a beautiful blue sky with cool mornings and warm afternoons. I am looking forward to the 2004 mango crop and I will be focusing on improving my collection of avocados pictures. Check out Dr. Jonathan Crane’s avocado viewer (Click Here). Also, I have been invited to present my Tropical Fruit Photography talk to the Tropical Fruit and Vegetable Society on January 28, 2004 at the Fruit and Spice Park in Homestead, FL at 7:30pm. If you are interested in learning all of my secrets please attend as it is open to the public.
