We talk with Dr. Ieuan Evans about growing fruit on the Canadian Prairies. Ieuan will share tips for success with fruit in cold climates. Then he telld us about apple, pear, cherry, and plum varieties suited to cold areas. 

We can thank Ieuan for the Alberta-developed Evans cherry tree that has been sold in the millions across cold areas of Canada and the United States. He tested them back in the 1970s shared them with as many people as he could.

And something that is dear to our hearts: He grows figs in Edmonton!
