(Video) Fruit Tasting Tour

Tuesday, November 2

$15 – $40

Please note that this will be a pre-recorded virtual garden tour and not an in-person tour at the Garden. After registration (see below), you will receive the video link in the automated receipt generated from register@ruthbancroftgarden.org.

Registration for the virtual garden tour will close on 2 November 2021 at 8am; video must be viewed before 5 November 2021.  You can watch the video anytime/anywhere before 5 November 2021.

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 50 minute 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 (harvested from the Garden) that you can clean and sample at home.

*As of 18 Oct 2021 – The Garden-to-Table box of fruit is SOLD OUT. We hope to have another offering in Fall 2022; be on the lookout in the weekly Nursery newsletter (which you can subscribe here).

Notes about the Garden-to-Table box*: Limited quantity of boxes available.  All orders must be received before 5pm on 21 Oct 2021 (Thursday).  Your box will be available for pick-up at the Admission kiosk on 23-24 Oct 2021 (Sat & Sun) during open business hours.  Fruit selection will be dependent on the season and availability.  No refunds on Garden-to-Table boxes and we are not able to offer shipping at this time.
