The Winters Friends of the Library will host the annual fruit tree sale on Saturday, March 2 (rain or shine), in the parking lot on Railroad Avenue between Baker and Edwards streets. The sale starts at 9 a.m. and will end when the last tree is sold.
Featured this year are bare-root fruit and nut trees and potted dwarf citrus trees grown by two premier nurseries from the region. Sierra Gold Nurseries of Yuba City has donated 400 bare-root fruit and nut trees, which will be on sale for $10 each. The trees include several popular varieties of peach, pomegranate, nectarine, apricot, apple, pear and cherries.
Four Winds Growers of Winters has donated 50 potted dwarf citrus trees — including orange, lemon, lime and mandarin — to be sold at $25 each.
Yolo Master Gardeners and pruners will be on hand to explain techniques for pruning and planting the trees. In addition, Sierra Gold Nurseries and Four Winds Growers will provide informational handouts about the types of trees.
Proceeds from the sale will be used to improve the library collections and programs and to contribute to the Winters Community Library.
