The Winters Friends of the Library annual fruit tree sale begins at 9 a.m. Saturday, March 1 — regardless of weather — and continues in the parking lot on Railroad Avenue between Baker and Edwards streets until 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 more than 400 bare-root fruit and nut trees, which will be on sale for $10 each. The trees include several popular varieties of peach, nectarine, apricot, almond, apple and more. Four Winds Growers of Winters has donated 50 potted dwarf citrus trees — including orange, lemon and lime — to be sold for $25 each.
Proceeds from the sale will be used to improve the Winters Community Library’s collections and programs.
