Maricopa County Cooperative Extension Master Gardeners present the 2021 Virtual Citrus Clinic (ONLINE EVENT).
Growing backyard fruit in our low desert can be challenging. However, with knowledge and proper care, home gardeners can find success. The Maricopa County Master Gardeners will host their 18th Citrus Clinic in a virtual format for 2021.
The Citrus Clinic features the foremost state citrus experts, including University of Arizona faculty and noted local professionals. The speakers will present eight sessions over four nights on topics to assist backyard citrus growers with selection and care as well as deciduous fruit selection and dates for the home grower.
Each night will feature two different topics. Each talk will last approximately 40 minutes with a 15 minute Q&A session following.
