When most people think of harvesting fruit, prickly pear cacti do not typically come to mind. With intimidating spines and stubborn glochids, the tasty fruit often gets bypassed for easier fare. The Garden has an abundance of fruit-producing plants which we will sample on this special tour including palm fruit, dragon fruit, and other unique cactus fruits. Additionally, Mrs. Bancroft will let us sample some of the fruit from her private garden, including her pineapple guava and a strawberry tree. Join us to figure out which is your favorite and to have a tasty tour at The Ruth Bancroft Garden.
