Where the Tupelo Grows Artist Event
February 11 @ 4:00 pm - March 10 @ 8:00 pm
- This event has passed.
This event is an opportunity to artistically interpret the environment and culture surrounding the region “Where The Tupelo Grows.” In the United States, the most productive area for the Tupelo tree is found in the Apalachicola River Basin in the Florida Panhandle. The nectar made from the Nyssa ogeche Tupelo tree has such a high ratio of fructose to glucose that it does not crystallize. It is a very light, mild-tasting honey and a highly valued crop. The unique geography and climate of the Apalachicola River basin have led to the evolution of a culture and way of life that is found nowhere else. An area also considered by some to be the original Garden of Eden.
