All About Fruit Show
The Home Orchard Society (HOS) is inviting you
to join us for the annual All About Fruit Show (AAFS). Attendees will be able to sample and
experience over 500 varieties of rare and heirloom fruit, including apples, Asian and European
pears, grapes, quince, kiwi, and more.
In addition to showcasing a wide variety of fruit, local fruit orchard experts will be on-hand to
help you ID some of your own home fruit, answer your fruit-related questions, and/or guide your
future fruit orchard projects you may have.
This year’s speaker series covers a variety of fruit-related topics such as fruit and nut explorations
and community orchard projects happening in Idaho with Casimir Holeski, Holistic Orchard
Management and Organic Fruit Tree Care with April Jamison, Water Collection and Water
Conservation with Johnathan Brandt, and the Art of Home-scale Cider Making with HOS Board
Member Todd Morrill. Grab a glass of fresh apple cider and broaden your fruit horizons.
“The All About Fruit Show is a unique tasting event seeking to inspire local orchardists and home
growers alike to 'plant outside the box’. There are seemingly endless varieties of fruits available
for growing here in the Pacific NW, including some unique and lesser-known fruits that don’t
typically make it to the supermarket shelves. The different textures, colors, and flavors showcase
the beauty that one can grow, enjoy, and preserve for future generations. For instance, you’d be
surprised how different one Asian pear tastes, when compared to another. It’s unbelievable!” -
