2020 Unusual Fruits Webinar

Often when we think of fruit grown in Kansas, apples, strawberries and blueberries — even in spite of our incompatible soils for blueberries — come to mind. Many native or adaptable fruit species are forgotten all together. Although unusual, many of these fruit species require less maintenance than traditionally cultivated fruits while still providing a bountiful and delicious harvest. Join Shawnee County Extension Master Gardener Kevin Siek as we discuss these wonderful, unusual fruits! This webinar is part of a series hosted by Shawnee County Extension Master Gardeners and staff. If you watch our webinar, please take 2-3 minutes to give us feedback!
