Frankie’s Nursery Tour and Fruit Tasting
Saturday, December 9, 2012 9:30 a.m. – 11:00 a.m.
Frank of Frankie’s Nursery will conduct a tour for Slow Food O’ahu through the grounds of his extensive fruit tree nursery. He and his wife Lynn, have spend many years establishing these unique collection of tropical fruit trees and plants. They have collected many new varieties on trips to Southeast Asia and Tropical Americas. They are uniquely able to help pick the right fruit tree for your Oahu location, be it a lanai in Waikiki or a rainforest at the back of Manoa. This is a great opportunity to find the best botanical Christmas gifts, a potted Meyer lemon for the lanai or a Rapoza mango for the yard or even a grafted “eggplant” tree that will yield year after year. Frankie’s is the best source by far for selecting fruit trees and other shrubs for your garden. Lynn and Frank can advise you on exactly what varieties are best for your neighborhood.
