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.
As the end of summer and back to school approaches we are celebrating the flavors of summer with another Ice Cream Social. Again there will be a large selection to sample and choose from. First Scoop Tickets (2 scoops for the price of 1) are available at the Nursery. An we will also offer a special savings on the "Pre-Sale" of our take-home pints. We will be posting the varieties available with our Harvest Report mailing.
The Mango Fiestival is behind us but we are still harvesting mangos. (If you haven't had a chance to see one of our Lancetilla, come by for a quick peak. THis fruit can get up to 5 pounds!) Selecting one or more of each variety is a way for you to create your own tasting - we can help you put together a box of assorted fruits.
We have posted many of the pictures from the Fiestival on our Facebook Page. Check it out (and don't forget to like us!)
Though the Sugar Apples and Longans are still not ready, we have a variety of other offerings. Make sure you signup for our newsletter as we are trying to send out a weekly mailing of what we are harvesting.
And we remind all of our friends that these days everyone has to be a responsible citrus owner. You can find forms and more information about the deadly disease at the following website: Texas Citrus Greening. As this disease has shown up in more backyards, the Department of Agriculture has issued new regulations on the sale of Citrus trees. Some of you probably knew that selling citrus tree had been suspended in April. Because of the tremendous costs of complying with the new regulations nurseries in Cameron and Hildago counties are no longer carrying citrus. Please remember that Texas has had citrus greening for over 2 years and this disesae is showing up in new places. The most effective approach to killing the spreaders of this disease is to work with all citrus growers on an Area Wide Management strategy.
For our Upper Valley neighbors - the QUINTA MAZATLAN carries our jellies. In Brownsville, the HISTORIC BROWNSVILLE MUSEUM is the exclusive retailer of our Convent Grape Butter along with our other jellies. Our jellies are also available at the EDINBURG WORLD BIRDING CENTER.
For our friends in the Corpus area you can find our jellies at THE BLEU FROG MERCANTILE. and in the Houston area we are at the EURO BAKERY and CAFE in Spring.
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.
We are open every Friday & Saturday hours (10 AM to 5 PM). Appointments can be arranged for other times for purchasing both plants and fruit.
