Festival of Fruit

The San Diego Chapter of the California Rare Fruit Growers will host the 2015 Festival of Fruit at the Jacobs Center, with the theme of “Year of the Drought-Tolerant Fruits.” The main event will be on Saturday August 8, and will kick off with fruit explorer Joe Simcox in a keynote session on uncommon fruit from dry regions of the world. The day will continue with 16 dynamic speaker presentations revolving around some of the more drought tolerant fruits that can be grown in Southern California, as well as products and cultural practices that can be used to help in water conservation. There will also be fruit tastings, an opportunity drawing, educational displays, a plant auction, and plant sales. In addition, a marketplace with more than 60 vendors, agencies, and non-profit organizations will feature educational demonstrations throughout the day. That evening the festival will conclude with keynote speaker Justin Rohner giving a presentation during the closing dinner on agriscaping and how to grow fruit year-round in arid climates.
