A Lecture: The History of the Mayhaw Tree with Scott Meyer
Scott Meyer of Conagree and Penn will speak about the history of the mayhaw tree, a native fruit-bearing tree, popular in jelly making, which grows wild here in Florida wetlands and can be cultivated.
Congaree and Penn has started cultivating over 800 mayhaw seedlings, which they plan to use to flavor their hard apple cider. Congaree and Penn are known for their Jacksonville-grown rice, which you can find in GastroFest’s Hopcloth Marketplace. They also grow muscadine grapes, and will soon have enough to establish “you pick” days. Free to the Public, courtesy of GastroJax, held during GastroFest.
