Monthly Club Meetings

On the second Friday of each month RFC members meet in the Mounts Auditorium at 7:00 PM to hear presentations given by professional and informative speakers on fruit. Before and after the presentations our members enjoy fellowshipping and sharing their fruit growing experiences and knowledge with each other. One of the highlights of our meeting is the Tasting table which is gloriously arrayed with rare tropical and often exotic fruits grown locally by our members.

Larry Grosser

Topic: lessons learned in growing fruit trees

Larry Grosser was born in West Palm Beach and grew up surrounded by many types of fruit trees. He bought a home in "Fruity Acres" in 1991, joined the PBRFC, and served as President in 1994/95. He has been a long-time tour guide at Unbelievable Acres and Mount's Botanical Garden. He moved to the Acreage in 2014 and has filled his property with fruit trees including 35 varieties of Mangos and many kinds of Avocados, Jackfruit, Sapodillas Longans, and many more.

Larry will speak tonight about lessons learned in growing fruit trees for more than 30 years including variety selection, fertilization, propagation, disease & pest control, and what to do with all of the harvested fruit.
