It's "The Year of the Heirloom Fruit."
The Home Orchard Society's All About Fruit Show is the Northwest's and possibly the world's largest exhibit of fall fruit varieties. Find your old favorite or a new one from among hundreds of varieties of pear, apple, grapes, quince & more, including many that are rare or historical. Learn about growing your own delicious, local, organic and economical fruit. Get advise on selecting, growing, pruning and harvesting fruit trees in your own yard. Order your favorites for your own home orchard!
Our expert team will identify your "mystery" apples and pears (bring 5 or 6 samples). Other activities include Speakers, Pie Baking Contest, Largest Fruit Contest, Apple Peeling Contest, and Raffle. The All About Fruit Show is HOS's biggest annual event and you don't want to miss it. Share the fun and tell your friends, or bring them with you!
