Our previous talk in Sept:

Topic of the last talk: “Rare Fruit from Around the World:  To try in California”.

Speaker: Brian Lavin

Talk Summary: Brian will briefly discuss factors in how he picks species to try, based on where they come from, genetics (he is a molecular biologist), and climate.  Then he’ll go through a list of potential species he has experimented with in some form that should grow for South Bay CRFG members. 


Speaker Bio: Brian is currently Chapter Chair of the Golden Gate Chapter.  His interests in fruit include everything from temperate to tropical species.  Recently, Brian has been experimenting more with uses of various fruits.  He primarily grows most things in pots, but also has various locations where he puts things in the ground.  He has taken several round trip road trips from Northern California to Southern California when he has packed his car with fruit trees from nurseries in San Diego and LA on those trips.

Time: Saturday, Sept 19 at 10am
