Founded in 1955, the Rare Fruit Council International, Inc. (RFCI) is a non-profit organization that promotes the development and use of tropical fruits in South Florida. The RFCI is headquartered in Miami, Florida and has chartered several chapters and affiliate fruit clubs. Florida’s benign climate is conducive to growing many tropical fruits that cannot be successfully cultivated anywhere else in the continental United States.
We also teach members and the general public methods of propagation and the cultural requirements of fruit trees. The Rare Fruit Council is indebted to its many worldwide members for donating seeds, scions, and plant materials to achieve this goal. At our monthly meetings we host a guest speaker, a plant swap, and a fruit-centric pot luck. We hope to see you at our next meeting.
