Tropical Fruits Day is returning to campus Thursday, March 29, from noon to 5 p.m. in the A.J Read Science Discovery Center (Physical Science). This botanical celebration will offer more than 40 fruits, seeds, teas and some tropical roots to sample. Come and taste them and learn about the cultures that grow and eat them. Learn how to cut a mango, and learn the difference between a mango and a mangosteen!
The entire campus community is invited, including any children of staff or faculty who may be on break this week from the local schools. Students are especially encouraged to come, and LEAD credit is offered. Drop in, try something exotic and learn about the cultures and fruits from tropical regions around the world.
You can even vote for your favorite tropical fruit. This fun and free event is co-sponsored by the A.J. Read Science Discovery Center and the Biology Department.
