Each year, Urban Harvest has perhaps the largest one-day fruit tree sale on the planet (at least, no one knows of a bigger one), and it’s one of the best places to get fruit trees and berries that are selected specifically for the climate and soil conditions of the greater Houston area.
Before the sale, be sure to check out the many varieties of trees and berries at urbanharvest.org, so you’ll know how much space each needs, when to plant and how to care for them, and anything else to know before you make your selections. Special fruit tree classes are also listed there. Advice will also be available at the sale itself.
Many of the tree varieties sell out by 11 am, so plan on arriving early. However, some of the unsold trees, plus tropical plants that are best to plant in March or later, may be available later in March at the farmers market on Eastside St. More details on that will also be on the Urban Harvest web site.
