What is the recommended way to plant – including when and how to prune initially? The answer to that might surprise you! Learn about some of the less common fruit trees, such as pomegranate, Jujube and Mulberry, where to find and buy your own plants, and which fruit tree varieties do best in our area. Come learn about these topics and much more from Master Gardener Kalpana Jain.
