Fruit Show sets root in Sequim on Saturday

Whether you’re looking for samples of Sequim’s finest fruits or tips on starting an orchard, the Olympic Orchard Society can help.

The club’s annual Fall Fruit Show runs 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 2, at Trinity United Methodist Church, 100 S. Blake Ave., Sequim. Cost is free to society members, or $3 per person, or $5 per family.

Organizers say about 200 varieties of apples and pears will be on display with about 25 types of ripe apples available for tasting.

The show features fruit trees for sale, educational speakers on a range of topics from pruning to pest control, an opportunity for people to ID their fruits (bring at least four uncleaned, uncut samples) and more.

For more information, call show chair Marilyn Couture at 360-681-3036.

Over the years, she learned to dehydrate fruit, press apples into cider, can fruit and more with her husband Alan. They’ll share some of their crop at the Fall Fruit Show on Nov. 2.
