Fruit lovers and growers get ready for the international Festival of Fruit, which features garden and nursery tours and lectures by prominent orchardists and expert growers of exotic fruits and vegetables. No registration is required to attend the Saturday vendor day showcasing a variety of products for edible gardening. Sponsored by the Santa Clara Valley Chapter of the California Rare Fruit Growers (CRFG), the event takes place in the region formerly known as the Valley of Heart’s Delight.
CRFG is the world’s largest amateur fruit-growers organization, specializing in fruits that are not native to nor grown commercially in California and nearby states. In addition to the annual Festival of Fruit, the group hosts two annual scion exchanges (January and February) when dormant fruit tree scions for grafting and/or cutting cultivation are shared among participants. This year marks the organization’s 50th anniversary. Info: here
