Welcome to MRFC  

Welcome to the Manatee County Rare Fruit Council Website

Join us as we share a passion for fruiting plants from around the globe. Our group actively works to share tropical fruit tree knowledge through a variety of mediums. Efforts from our group at Palma Sola Park in Bradenton, FL have given visitors a chance to see rare specimen trees up close and personal.

Have a question or comment about a rare fruit tree, want to share a helpful propagation technique? Please drop us an e-mail or attend one of our monthly meetings. Our annual tropical fruit tree sale is an excellent opportunity to add to your collection.


Whats New At MRFC  
Heroes Needed

Our club has much to take pride in--- a long, illustrious history, the best tree sale, the best rare fruit tree collection, an unsurpassed program of speakers, tours, events, and public education, and more. The ongoing effort of a great many members has built this, and keeps it all going. And the foundation for most everything we do is the revenue from the annual tree sale.

The clock is ticking toward May, and we are approaching the point where preparations for next year's sale must begin. As yet, however, we lack a tree sale chair.

I hope that a hero will step forward to take charge. Failing that, there may be more than one way to peel this mango. Perhaps a group can divvy up the responsibilities and coordinate their efforts. Is there a part of the sale that you are willing to take charge of?

Let's find a way to put on the big show.
