    I’m in GA I just joined how can I get the magazines of this years first 2 copies to get me caught up on things for this year and what will be my closest chapter. And is their anyone you can point me too where I could obtain a couple cuttings of Edgar Valdivia Yellow Long Neck Fig. Thanks, Avery

      Ronni Kern · March 5, 2021 at 12:31 pm

      Avery, you can check out the locations of all Chapters on the Chapter page of the website. But if you are in Georgia, I’m afraid you’re sort of out of luck.

      Vis a vis the cuttings of Yellow Long Neck Fig, we are very close to getting our membership section of the site set up. There members will be able to exchange scion wood (within legal limits, of course. I don’t know what Georgia’s import rules are)

        Thanks Ronni,
        I am out of luck , but at least I can enjoy the magazine I can receive cuttings. Will an email be sent out when the members site is set up? Take care

Buying jackfruit seeds?

    Ronni Kern · August 30, 2018 at 8:23 pm

    Not clear if you’re buying or selling, but we are not set up for either.

Interested in back-yard fruit growing in N Texas (zone 8).

How do you subscribe to the physical magazine? Is this possible? Thank you!

    Ronni Kern · May 26, 2020 at 1:57 pm

    Cherrie, if you join CRFG, you get the magazine automatically. If you want a physical copy vs. an electronic .pdf, that option is available, either first class or bulk mail. You can see the details here: https://crfg.org/home/join/

      Cherrie · August 4, 2020 at 12:56 pm

      Thank you Ronni! I’ve joined and I look forward to the first issue.

How ca I purchase a copy of the Nov/Dec issue with Paw Paws on the cover please?

    Ronni Kern · November 11, 2020 at 12:39 pm

    Mike, in general we don’t sell individual copies of the Fruit Gardener since, like the Smithsonian Magazine or the National Geographic Magazine, it is a perk of membership in our organization. I spoke to our admin, however, who might make an exception. Did you want a .pdf of the magazine or a hard copy? If the latter, where in the world are you located?

When I lived in L.A. I was a member of the Encino, Los Angeles and Arboretum groups for about 20 years. I lived in Tarzana and moved to Palm Desert 16 years ago. I am on the Phoexix RFG site. Can I get on the California site on facebook or whatever ?

    Ronni Kern · February 27, 2021 at 7:14 pm

    Irving, not sure what you want to “get on”. You are already on the crfg.org website if you are able to send this comment. The chapters you used to belong to also have websites you can find in Chapters. Since you commented on the Fruit Gardener post, if you would like to receive the Fruit Gardener, you can always join crfg.org and receive it. I am not sure who runs the CRFG Facebook page but if you go to it, you could request admission.

Hi Everyone
I am looking for a pomegranate tree.
It has white or sage or light green skin.
e skin never get red like regular pomegranate.
Any help appreciated.

    Ronni Kern · September 4, 2021 at 5:35 pm

    It would help to know where you are (zip code?) but there are several poms of your description. The White Pomegranate has, sure enough, white skin. (Okay, sort of pinky white.) You can see other varieties whose skin ranges from tannish to orange at Bay Laurel Nursery

Himani Natu · October 19, 2021 at 2:28 pm

I want to learn about growing Passion fruit I can eat in Aptos CA. I have one vine of Passiflora edulis and one fruit so far. The new blossoms seem diseased. Are there other edible Passion fruit I can grow in Aptos ? I love the Lilikoi I have had in Hawaii. I heard there is a Passiflora Ligularis but the local nursery said they never get that variety.
I am a recently joined member. I used to belong to the group 20 years ago.
Thanks Himani

    Ronni Kern · November 18, 2021 at 8:25 pm

    Himani, I would check with your closest Chapter (Under the Chapters tab on the home page) They will be your best source of information on what can be grown in your area. You could also check with Jorge Ochoa at Long Beach City College. He is a well known passiion fruit expert and lectures to chapters frequently.

I live in Phoenix and joined about two weeks ago. I want to meet and interact with other members but cant seem to find meetings and field trips. Any help would be appreciated.
