April is here and the summer has come early as the daily temperatures are scorching towards the 90’s. This year’s mango, lychee, longan, and avocado season look amazing and bumper crops are just around the corner. I am very excited for yet another opportunity to photograph these crops. This month’s update includes pictures taken at Lara farms, one of the best tropical fruit nurseries in Miami (ph 305 253-2750) and the only banana nursery, Going Bananas Nursery http://www.going-bananas.com.
