midfex - Midwest Fruit Explorers (members only)

Subject: Midwest Fruit Explorers (members only)

Description: MidFEx, short for Midwest Fruit Explorers, is a non-profit
organization of amateur backyard fruit growing enthusiasts.
Most of our members live in the counties surrounding
Chicago. Our interest go beyond the common varieties found in commercial
stores. This includes little known varieties of apples, peaches, pears, plums,
grapes and nuts; and more unusual fruits such as the pawpaw,
mulberry, persimmon, fig, juneberry, Asian pear, and hardy kiwi. Our members are active in grafting, testing
new varieties, and exchanging information about the best ways
to grow and maintain home orchards.
