Mike Parker, Associate Professor, Department of Horticultural Science, NC State University

  • Thursday, December 4, 2008 – 7:30 pm9:00 pm

Mike Parker is an authority on apples, peaches, and alternative fruit crops. He'll discuss the culture and management of apples in the home garden, and share his recommendations on the best varieties to grow. Join us to learn about how easy it is to grow and enjoy this healthful fruit in your home garden. Remember, an apple a day keeps the doctor away. This FOA Lecture was scheduled to take place after the apple harvest in North Carolina so Mike could bring some apples to try.
