GRow Your Fruit Yourself

Most of our meetups focus on growing vegetables and other annual plants. This meetup will discuss growing fruit trees, fruit vines, and other edible perennials in small spaces. Winter is often the best time for planting these and they will soon be available in your local nurseries.

We will cover:

Chill hours and its impact on what fruit you can grow.
Getting fruit all year long
Growing trees and bushes in the ground.
(Very different rules than annuals in raised beds)
Growing trees and bushes in pots.
Ways of packing lots of trees in a small space.

Examples of Fruits you can grow:

Apples, apricots, Bananas, black berries, blue berries, citrus (lemons, limes, oranges, etc.), dragon fruit (and other exotics), figs, grapes, loquats, nectarines, pears, plucots, plums, persimmons, raspberries, strawberries, etc. Plan carefully and you can have fresh fruit all year long.

    Sounds wonderful, but I think that date conflicts with the scion exchange at CRFG. Terrible choice to have to make! :)

    • GregS

      Your telling me!! However, my lecture is geared towards those who are not yet quite ready for the exchange. I may try to get some wood by proxy, but what I really want this year is citrus and I need to get that from UCR. I will certainly be promoting CRFG as part of the talk.

    I'm interested to learn how to prune trees so that most fruits are low hanging fruits.

    • GregS

      Pruning and size control will definitely be part of the talk.

    Meeting was moved from Dec to Jan. I emailed all who RSVP'd but library said there were still a few who showed up unaware of the change. My apologies. I did not email whole group, just RSVPs of the change.
