Jan. 18-Less Common Fruit Bearing Plants, Elizabeth Wahle, University of Illinois Extension Commercial Ag Educator (Fruits and Vegetables)

Everyone, or most everyone is familiar with fruits like apples, pears, cherries, blueberries and raspberries, but what about lesser known fruit plants like bush cherries, medlars, shipova, goji berries and pawpaw? This session will cover 24 of the lesser known fruiting plants, including their care, which are hardy for outdoor planting and which taste good straight off the plant or require processing to bring out their full flavor profile.
