Title: Minnesota Rare Fruit Growers
Post by: CherimoyaDude on April 03, 2022, 06:32:41 PM
Does anyone know if there is anything like CRFG in Minnesota or know of any good gardening / farming groups? I might end up having to move there in the next few years and would like to continue my hobby. This would be for growing outside, not space station / heated greenhouse tropicals.

Hi I had a Post wrote, but not sure where anyways here is one site Mid west fruit growers
I have more . Kinda far but I will look.

If your into grapes you may want to grow  Elmer Swenson grapes
Here is a list of different fruits that grow up that way.
(I also know pawpaws can grow up that far you may want early ripening like Jerry Lehman's VE -21
(I guessed it stood for Very Early when I bought seeds off Him  I guess I was wrong VE is Valley East)

(you maybe able to grow Cornelian cherries as well which taste like cherry
 ( cornelian cherry or edible dog wood as not a actual cherry)
