Welcome to the exciting world of exotic fruit growing!
Please note that the Nursery will close at Noon on Friday, July 18 as we prepare for our 6th Annual Mango Fiestival. Normal nursery hours will resume on Friday, July 25th.
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.
July 19 from 9 am to Noon
The excitement is building with the ripening fruit on our trees. Join us for a morning of everything mango.
We will have Texas' greatest display of mango varieties, a public taste evaluation of the mangos harvested from our collection with voting to determine the best flavors of 2014, programs to learn about all aspects of mango growing, culinary demonstrations using mangos, the "Its All About the Mango" Food Contest with professional and amateur chefs showingcasing their favorite mango dishes, special kids activities including the Mr. Mango Head Contest, and a bevy of delicious mango products and other fresh fruits to taste and buy.
New to this year's event is the Mango Medic Table. Get answers to your questions - you can even bring a sample of your ailing tree if it is sealed in a plastic bag (ziplocked).
And keeping with the sounds of the tropics, the Steel Drum Band SPI Pan will be playing thoroughout the morning.

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. Please remember that Texas has had citrus greening for nearly 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.
