Fruit Tree Associations
|Associations in San Diego are dedicated to educate about fruits, to identify fruits that are adaptable to the local area, and to propagate and to exchange plant materials.|
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.
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.
The San Diego Chapter of CRFG meets monthly on the fourth Wednesday of the month. Meetings begin at 7:00PM. Non-members are welcome. The 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. Programs also include talks on grafting and pruning. The first meeting of the year is the scion exchange where members and non-members bring and exchange dormant wood cuttings for grafting.
