Crisp Fall air has returned and once again and The Home Orchard Society is inviting you to join us for the annual All About Fruit Show (AAFS). Attendees will be able to sample and experience over 500 varieties of rare and heirloom fruit, including apples, Asian and European pears, grapes, quince, kiwi, and more.
In addition to show. casing a wide variety of fruit, local fruit orchard experts will be on-hand to help you ID some of your own home fruit, answer your fruit-related questions, and/or guide your future fruit orchard projects you may have.
This year’s speaker series covers a variety of fruit-related topics such as fruit and nut explorations and community orchard projects happening in Idaho with Casimir Holeski, Holistic Orchard Management and Organic Fruit Tree Care with April Jamison, Water Collection and Water Conservation with Johnathan Brandt, and the Art of Home-scale Cider Making with HOS Board Member Todd Morrill. Grab a glass of fresh apple cider and broaden your fruit horizons.
“The All About Fruit Show is a unique tasting event seeking to inspire local orchardists and home growers alike to “plant outside the box” by seeing and tasting the wide array of fruits available to us in the Pacific NW – including some weird and rare gems never seen on the supermarket shelves. These different textures, colors, flavors showcase the beauty that one can enjoy, grow, and preserve for future generations in their backyard. For instance, you’d be surprised how different one Asian pear looks and tastes, when compared to another. It’s unbelievable!” – April Jamison, HOS Board Member
Admission is $5 for HOS Members, $10 for HOS HOS Member Families, $7 for non-members, and $12 for non-member Families. Become a Home Orchard Society Member at the event doors, and get free entry day of!
