Learn about fruit gardening and sample local apple varieties at the Seattle Tree Fruit Society Fall Fruit Show tomorrow.

It’s a great opportunity to learn more about growing your own fruit. You’ll be able to attend lectures on mason bees, mead, container gardening, and choosing fruit varieties for smaller gardens. A large number of apple varieties will be available to sample, as will various products made from apples and other fruits from the home garden. Vendors such as Western Washington Fruit Research Foundation, Raintree Nursery, and Hartman’s Nursery will offer interesting products and information, and tool sharpening and apple identification will be available.

STFS members will be on hand to chat about many aspects of home fruit growing. They’re great resources for information on pest control and the best fruit varieties to grow in our climate.

The Fall Fruit show runs from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m at the Center for Urban Horticulture at 3501 NE 41st Street (Mary Gates Drive).
