The Fort Bend County Master Gardeners will hold their annual Fruit Tree Sale on Saturday, February 9th, 2019 from 9:00 a.m. until noon. The sale will be held in the George Pavilion at the Fort Bend County Fairgrounds in Rosenberg.
In Fort Bend County, we are fortunate that we can grow several types of fruit trees, from apples and plums to many varieties of citrus and even tropicals and semi-tropicals. The Fort Bend County Master Gardeners sell trees that are highly adapted to our climate and with proper care should grow well and produce fruit for many years to come. Fruit trees are a welcome addition to any landscape and can provide color, fruit and beauty to your yard.
This year, we will offer new varieties of citrus and other fruits that have not been available at our previous sales, from Australian Finger Limes and Sanguinelli blood oranges to new blueberry varieties and Arabica coffee, among others. Please visit our website, fbmg.org, for more information.
All proceeds from this sale are used to support the educational programs we offer throughout the year. This sale helps us purchase supplies for our training and educational efforts, as well as demonstration garden plants and materials.
There will be a Keys to Success in Fort Bend County Fruit Production talk on February 2nd, 2019 from 9:00 a.m. until 11:00 a.m. that is open to the public. Best planting techniques, best culture and maintenance techniques will be discussed, as well as varieties offered at the fruit tree sale. The talk will take place at the Bud O’Shieles Community Center, 1330 Band Road in Rosenberg.
