Jorge Zaldivar - History of Florida Guava

The History, Seed Introduction and Lore of Florida Guava - Jorge J. Zaldivar
Local farmer and historian, Jorge J. Zaldivar of PG Tropicals and Guavonia Guava Grove presents The History, Seed Introduction & Lore of Florida Guava.

To early pioneers of South Florida, the guava was a critical crop, providing valuable income and juice for making jellies and other preserved specialties.

Come explore old Miami and South Dade, join Jorge to learn more about his discoveries and how he is keeping these Floridian traditions alive. Mr. Zaldivar is a board member of the South Florida Palm Society (SFPS), The Rare Fruit Council International (RFCI) Miami, and a disc jockey known over the air waves as DJ Mamey Disco.
