The non-profit Rare Fruit & Vegetable Council of Broward County (RFVC) is dedicated to educating our members and the public about the methods for growing and propagating rare tropical fruits and vegetables and introducing the local community to new species of rare fruits and vegetables with promising nutritional values.


The Rare Fruit and Vegetable Council of Broward County (RFVC) was founded in 1975 by a group of dedicated individuals who were inspired to share their knowledge, time and help to anyone interested in the cultivation of tropical fruits and vegetables. 


We are open to the public two times per year during our semi-annual plant sales. We also host onsite workshops and educational seminars for a small fee.


Members have access to our facility and may purchase from our full selection of cultivars, starts and seedlings throughout the year during member plant sales. We also enjoy first access to educational workshops and field trips, monthly meetings with educational speakers and a regular e-newsletter.
