It seems almost every property on Maui has at least one fruit tree, if not more, and many homeowners have even developed small orchards to bring in more income. Do you have questions about your citrus trees? Does your tangerine tree produce dry fruit or does your tree never seem to have any fruit?

From Oranges to Tangerines and Finger Limes, Jamie can help you select the best variety for your location and elevation on Maui. She will show us how properly pruning trees can help increase yields and create better tasting fruit. She will also be discussing the best fertilizers to use on all varieties of citrus. In addition, attendees will learn the best management practices for pests and diseases as well as the history of citrus around the world.

Jamie is also bringing information on new varieties they are growing at Plant It Hawaii! If you or your clients have fruit trees, you want to plant some or if you have any questions, come and listen!
