Feast your senses on the bounty of the fall harvest in our Foods of the Americas exhibit. Visit our marketplace filled with produce that was first cultivated from the wild by ancient Mayan, Incan and Aztec cultures. From the well-known corn, tomatoes, potatoes, and chocolate to the less familiar amaranth, quinoa and oca, learn the history, botany and nutritional value of these important foods. See them growing in our Crops of the World Garden, Tropical House, Mexico/ Central American and South American collections.
Schools may schedule this special interactive 75 minute program for their classes.
