Some people say that NW Fruit (WWFRF) is “the best little all volunteer, non-profit organization few folks have ever heard of! ”
Some of the many undertakings of NW Fruit include:
– Educational seminars, symposiums, and events affiliated with WSU presenting “cutting edge” information on disease control issues like the recent Spotted Wing Fruit Fly infestation.
– Research on what’s best to grow locally and how to grow it, which is combined with the results of 45 years of fruit research history, a program envied throughout the country for it’s extensive varietal selection process.
– A unique 6 acre Fruit Garden in which members and the public have a chance to experience the latest fruit culture techniques with “hands on” demonstrations, and the opportunity to see the extensive fruit variety collections gathered from around the world.
