Join us for a virtual version of our annual Fruit Tasting Tour, one of the Garden’s most popular tours that sells out every year. Brian Kemble, Curator of the Ruth Bancroft Garden will lead you on a tour that will highlight a variety of the edible cactus fruits, palm fruits and other delectable items that grow in the Garden as well as in Ruth’s private Garden. The virtual tour will include a tutorial on how to safely harvest and clean opuntia (prickly pear) fruit; you have an option to purchase a Garden-to-Table box of fruit from the Garden that you can clean and sample at home.
