Alliance Field Day: Fruit Tree Grafting and Orchard Tour

  • Southern Cultured Orchards & Nursery Carrollton, MS (map)

This event will be hosted by Southern Cultured Orchards & Nursery in Carrollton, MS. Major activities will include: “Fruit Tree Grafting Demonstration and Tour of the Farm’s Orchard”.

Southern Cultured Orchards & Nursery (SCON) is located in Carroll County, MS.  What started out as a fruit-growing hobby has evolved into a full-time nursery business, specializing in locally-adapted, Deep South varieties of apples and pears, as well as some citrus, figs, and heirloom and exotic fruits. The focus of SCON is propagating and selling fruit trees – not on fruit production. They grow and sell numerous varieties of heirloom apple trees from Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, and Louisiana – ones that are naturally selected to perform with minimum care and without conventional spraying programs. This is an ongoing trial, and new (old) varieties of homestead apples are introduced each year. SCON is active in the Southern Fruit Fellowship (SFF) and North American Fruit Explorers (NAFEX) organizations. https://www.facebook.com/southernculturedorchardsandnursery
