Peninsula Fruit Club 2013 Fall Fruit Show

Peninsula Fruit Club will host the 2013 Fall Fruit Show on Saturday, October 12, in the Silverdale Community Center, 9729 Silverdale Way NW, Silverdale from 10 am to 4 pm.  Admission is free, but we would appreciate a donation.  We will have videos on anthracnose, pruning blueberries, and mason bees.  There will be trees for sale as well as grafting and growing supplies.  We should have around 200 different cultivars of fruit on display and available for tasting.  This is a wonderful chance to bring your mystery apples to have them identified.  The expert apple ID team of Joanie Cooper and Shaun Shepherd from the Home Orchard Society in Portland will be on hand to ID your chantix buy online uk apples.  Lori Brakken will be there and have the online apple ID program running.  Please bring 4 to 6 samples from each tree, do not wash the fruit, and leave the stems on.  Tell us all you can about the apples:  When do they ripen?  How long do they keep?  If you can have an idea how old the tree is, that sometimes helps a lot.  How tall is the tree?  When does it flower?  All these clues will help figure out what variety of apple you have.

 Join us for a fun day of tasting fruit and learning about growing fruit in this area.  Here’s a link to our flyer:  https://wcfs.org/wp-content/uploads/PFC-Fall-Show-Poster-2013.pdf
