Topic: Jujubes, Paw Paws and More

Speaker:  Roger Meyer

Roger Meyer will speak on the jujube, the paw paw and other unusual fruit. For those of you who have heard Roger speak before, you know that his will be a talk you do not want to miss! A long time CRFG member and the current Vice President of the national CRFG, Roger is one of the most knowledgeable people we have in the CRFG on tropicals and subtropicals and how to grow them in our climate. He is a member of several chapters, but the Orange County Chapter is his home base.

Roger and his wife Shirley have a rare fruit tree nursery in Fountain Valley. He will bring fruit to sample and plants to sell! Call him at (714) 839-0796 or email him at to place special orders (almost any fruiting plants – not just jujubes). He will bring them to the meeting.

Bring a friend who is interested in growing rare fruit!

We will also have an exciting plant auction!

Come prepared to buy plants and take home lots of trees and other fruiting plants! Charles Portney will be bringing over 100 of his remarkably healthy plants, including babaco, golden tamarillo, blackberry, nopales (cactus pear), pepino, cape gooseberry (poha), ground cherry, many cherry-of-the-Rio-Grande, roseapple, fig and more. This will be his last time this year to bring plants. Bruce is bringing three or four sapotes, persimmon, jac fruit, ice cream bean tree, sugar cane, and solo papaya seedlings (excellent for grafting after our February scion exchange), as well as grafted mulberry, avocado (1 each of Hellen, Linda, Malama), Cherimoya (1 each of Fino do Jete, Orton, El Bumpo, White), and other trees. Margaret and others are also bringing fruit trees.  So, leave room in your car for many fruit trees!
