Fruit event -sampling fruit, fruit and fruit trees for sale
« on: January 20, 2022, 02:55:02 PM »
How about a summer fruit event at the Charlotte Harbor Event and Conference Center on July 2nd?
Vendors- $75 a table, $10 entrance fee
Premium fruit growers will have samples and fruit for sale. Fruit tree nurseries will be there selling trees. Have a product for sale or service to offer? Be there for only $75. Looking for fresh mango to sample and buy? $10 in the door. Air-conditioned, on the river, plenty of parking, and good restaurants and hotel accommodations within walking distance (Sheraton 4 point).
What do you think?

I think the growers in FL and CA are lucky when it comes to group sales and we always get the short end of the stick in AZ.
Seriously, take him up on the offer.  I really wish we had enough AZ members to do something like this.

Although the Texas group seems to be growing,

I can sympathize

Not too far of a drive out for something really cool, but I know it hurts and is $$$. Even just up here in Santa Barbara I get jealous of the SD groups meet-ups.

In Louisiana theres only a handful of us growing anything but citrus. I'm driving about 45 minutes to go get a chempedak tho  ;D. Wish we could get some more rare fruit growers here.
