We host free Summer Planting and Fall Tasting networking events for Florida Cranberry Alliance members and friends in Lakeland, Florida.
The Fall Tasting meeting is an excellent opportunity to share your handcrafted Florida Cranberry creations, along with recipes, product development, fruit preservation and growing techniques. We will also touch on harvest and storage practices and marketing opportunities.
Lots of Florida Cranberry inspired edible (and non-edible!) goodness will be available and we encourage members to bring their own creations to share.
The Florida Cranberry, also known as Roselle or Jamaican sorrel, is the unique culinary super fruit of Hibiscus sabdariffa.
This drought-tolerant subtropical plant offers a myriad of culinary and aesthetic uses: leaves and flower calyces can be eaten fresh, dehydrated for teas and fruit leather, distilled, fermented into beer and wine, made into juices or syrups, or used in floral arrangements.
Florida Cranberry is planted in the summer and the fruit is harvested between September and November.
We encourage folks of all varieties - from growers to grocers, craft beer makers to chefs, pastry chefs to florists - to introduce this fantastic fruit into your garden and kitchen.
Share the Hibiscus Love!

The Florida Cranberry Alliance is a grassroots movement that aims to raise awareness and develop a market for the Florida Cranberry. We believe Florida's super-fruit has great potential to be 100% naturally grown and sustainably harvested in Florida with less human intervention and environmental impact than the many crops currently grown in our region.
