Welcome to the Manatee County Rare Fruit Council Website

Join us as we share a passion for fruiting plants from around the globe. Our group actively works to share tropical fruit tree knowledge through a variety of mediums. Efforts from our group at Palma Sola Park in Bradenton, FL have given visitors a chance to see rare specimen trees up close and personal.

Have a question or comment about a rare fruit tree, want to share a helpful propagation technique? Please drop us an e-mail or attend one of our monthly meetings. Our annual tropical fruit tree sale is an excellent opportunity to add to your collection.


Whats New At MRFC  
Pete Ray Memorial Service

As announced in the club newsletter, there will be a memorial service for Pete this coming Saturday, January 31 at 5:00 p. m. The location is the Bradenton Yacht Club at 4700 Snead Isle Road in Palmetto. I know that a great many of us will be in attendance. While it is a sad occasion, to be sure, I anticipate some moving tributes and some fascinating history of this remarkable, many-faceted man.
