Fort Bend Master Gardeners to hold fruit tree sale Saturday

Posted

The Fort Bend Master Gardeners are hosting their 22nd Annual Fruit Tree Sale.

The sale is from 9 a.m.-12 p.m. Saturday at the George Pavilion at the Fort Bend County Fairgrounds, 4310 Hwy. 36, Rosenberg.

The sale will feature an estimated 75 different varieties of fruit trees and berries for sale with approximately 1,000 different plants available. Fort Bend Master Gardeners will be available at the sale to answer questions about how to plant and care for trees and plants.

Due to last year’s freeze, a limited number of citrus trees will be sold. Several varieties of avocados, apples, figs, peaches, pears, plums, persimmons, pomegranates, blueberries and blackberries will be available. These plants have been acquired from a reputable grower and chosen based on their likelihood of success in Fort Bend County.

Additionally, Fort Bend Master Gardeners are growing tropical fruits, including Java Blue bananas, gingers, moringa (Moringa oleifera), papaya, turmeric and dragon fruit, that will also be for sale.

Sales proceeds support the Fort Bend County Master Gardeners, Inc., a non-profit organization whose purpose is to disseminate research-backed horticulture advice to residents of Fort Bend County, in support of Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service.

All citrus trees available at the Fort Bend Master Gardener Fruit Tree Sale are certified to be disease free.
