In Fort Bend County, we can grow several types of fruit trees, from apples and plums to many varieties of citrus, tropical and semi-tropical trees. 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 and citrus trees are a welcome addition to any landscape and can provide color, fruit and beauty to your yard.
Our 2020 Fruit Tree Sale will offer some tropical plants propagated and grown by one of our own Master Gardeners, including Hawaiian Strawberry Papaya, Oleifera Moringa, and Zingiber Ginger, to name a few. Other plants new to our sale are Paw Paw Seedlings, Prime Ark Freedom Blackberries and several new citrus varieties. And don’t miss some of our favorites: Improved Meyer Lemon, Anna Apples, and Eve’s Pride Peaches. For a complete list of plants visit https://fbmg.org/events/annual-sales/fruit-citrus-tree-sale/
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.
