The San Diego Chapter of the California Rare Fruit Growers was created to educate people about rare fruits, to identify fruits that are adaptable to the local area, and to propagate and to exchange plant materials.
What do we do?
During the year, the San Diego Chapter has many activities related to growing rare, unusual and exotic fruits. Membership is open to anyone with an interest in growing fruits in the San Diego area and a desire to improve their gardening skills.
Our meetings cover a wide variety of subjects such as selecting rare or semitropical fruit trees, how to plant and take care of them, how enhance your garden with fruit trees, and what to do with your new source of food.
During our meetings, we have a raffle of rare and exotic plants, mostly scarce fruit trees, donated to the Chapter by our generous membership. We also have a fruit tasting table, where the members get to enjoy fresh fruit prepared in many ways.
In addition, members receive a monthly newsletter filled with information about activities of interest to San Diego gardeners, and recipes using exotic fruits.
