Join us for our June speaker Gene McAvoy, award winning agricultural educator and director of the Hendry County IFAS office (the agricultural extension office). He will be speaking to our club about dragon fruit, or pitaya as it is known in Spanish speaking countries.
Gene has several growers of dragon fruit in Hendry County. He will be sharing with us their experiences on how best to grow this unusual cactus that bears its exotic fruit.
He will discuss the basic horticultural requirements of growing pitaya, and the pros and cons of different cultivars.
Our club has many members who grow this fruit, so no doubt it will be a lively and interesting evening. We hope to see you there!
