Our guests were Paul Zomoda a member of the Tampa Rare Fruit Council and Debbie Butts Co-Producer of the SL Program. We talked about a variety of issues concerning backyard fruit trees, vines, bushes, etc. With the recent freeze we talk about cold-tolerant fruiting plants, and some that might require more cold temps than we have in our area. Paul talked about his present passion growing grapes and wine making. The guests cover where to find more information and books on the topic. Visit the RFCI web site, and attend the fall plant sale at USF.
