The Fort Bend County Master Gardeners will hold their annual Fruit Tree Sale on Saturday, Feb. 9, from 9 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, it is fortunate that residents 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, they will offer new varieties of citrus and other fruits that have not been available at the previous sales, from Australian Finger Limes and Sanguinelli blood oranges to new blueberry varieties and Arabica coffee, among others. Please visit their website, fbmg.org, for more information.
All proceeds from this sale are used to support the educational programs they offer throughout the year. This sale helps the group purchase supplies for their training and educational efforts, as well as demonstration garden plants and materials.
