Summer is fruit season—this summer being an exceptional year for fruit trees—and The Huntington Library & Gardens in Pasadena is hosting a special gardening workshop this Saturday from 1:00–4:00 PM. "Tropical Fruit Trees" will teach gardeners at any level how to grow exotic fruits at home, "from the ubiquitous banana and avocado to the unusual lychee and starfruit; from juicy mangoes and papayas to the bizarre durian. Learn how to select and grow the best of each variety, including fertilizing, pruning, irrigation and landscape potential. Class includes a tour of The Huntington’s tropical fruit trees." Registration costs are $35.00 for members and $45.00 for non-members. To sign up, call (626) 405-2146.
