Welcome to the exciting world of exotic fruit growing!

Rivers End Nursery and Farm has developed over the last 18 years from a vision of enjoying delicious tropical fruits from around the world and introducing these trees and fruits to interested folks in subtropical/tropical locations.

We also offer bamboo, flowering trees, palms, landscape specimens, natural plant and soil amendments to enhance your landscape.

 

What's Blooming!

SPRING is in the air... The mangos are starting to bloom and hopefully the timing of the cold fronts we are now experiencing will not interfer with pollination.  Now is the time to get ready for that flurry of activity once we are officially in South Texas Spring, things like fertilizing everything, planting ASAP 'cause spring is a very short season here, pruning of the winter crops like citrus, late season avocados, sapodillas and black sapote.  Get those nematodes in the ground now to impact thrips and ticks before they move away from the soil.

February 12 marks the opening day of our Nursery for 2016.  We look forward to showing off the terrific fruit trees we have for you this season.  Please make sure you signup for our Newsletter (and make sure you respond to the confirmation request) so you will be current on our offerings in both plants and fruit along with upcoming programs.

It is grafting time for a lot of plants and new growth is starting to flush out.  We are having our Spring Grafting Class February 20, so be sure to signup to reserve your space.  Our first Walking tour is March 12.  And we are planning a special event for April.  We'll keep you posted.

The MANGO FIESTIVAL date has been decide - July 16, so make sure you mark it on your calender now.

We have been harvesting some lovely Black Sapote this year along with the exceptional Sapodillas.  You can find our fruit at several of the Valley's Farmers Markets including Brownsvile and South Padre Island with Franne and the McAllen GrowNGrowers Market with Seth.

 And a reminder about your citrus trees —regular spraying for the Asian Citrus Pysllid in absolutely mandatory—please make sure you do so at once.  It is the responsibility of every person who has a citrus tree on their property—both homeowners and commercial growers to do their part to try to protect our beautiful, fragrant and delicious fruit bear citrus of all varieties from the deadly and incurable Citrus Greening Disease.  

 

 

Please Note

Because Tropical and Subtropical Fruit trees require conditions that are sometimes not typical in our region or yours, we cannot be responsible for our plants once they leave the nursery.

*Currently we do not ship plants or fruit to California.

*Items over 3 gallons are sold for pick-up only. They will not be shipped.
