Benefits of Growing Your Own Fruit

  • Improved Health
    Fresh, wholesome fruits are important for a healthy diet. Because fruits lose a portion of their nutrients as they age, it’s important to eat the freshest fruits possible.
  • Lower Cost
    Growing your own fruit is far less expensive than buying it at the store. And perennial plants come back year after year – it’s like having a never-ending fruit bowl!
  • Better Environment
    Fruiting bushes and trees provide food and habitat options for birds and other important wildlife. They also enrich your soil and improve its quality for other plants.
