Urban Harvest 10th Annual Fruit Tree Sale Weather Related Update- The Show Goes On!


There will be a sale regardless of the cold weather. All of the fruits that we have advertised will be available. Urban Harvest has prepared for the sale by doing the following:

Since the temperatures are likely to be freezing, the tropical fruits and citrus (see fruit listed below) will be protected in large covered trucks in the parking lot. This is to keep your plants well protected so that you will have a healthy plant.
A few varieties such as papaya can be purchased at the sale and then picked up at the Urban Harvest farmers market the following Saturday morning, between 8 a.m. and noon, at 3000 Richmond Avenue at Eastside.
* Tropical fruits and citrus are the following: Avocado, Cherry of the Rio Grande, B-17 Edible Barbados Cherry, grapefruit, kumquat, lemon, lime, limequat, citron, lychee, mango, orange, pumelo, satsuma, star fruit, tangelo, tangerine, banana, dragon fruit, guava, papaya, pitaya, sugar apple, sapote.

Customers need to be prepared to protect their citrus and tropical fruits from the cold on the journey home.

Take your citrus and tropical immediately from the truck and placed inside your vehicle. Do not transport your tropicals or citrus plants in an open vehicle, if the temperature is freezing.
If possible, bring blankets to wrap your tropicals for transporting them from the grower’s trucks to your car.
When you arrive home your tropical fruits and citrus will need to be placed in a location where the temperature will remain above 32 F.
Make sure you dress for the weather. This means layers of clothing, gloves, hat, scarf, etc..
