Facilitator

Oscar Jaitt. Nurseryman and owner of Fruit Lover’s Nursery, established in 1990. Oscar’s goal has been to collect and distribute as widely as possible seeds, plants, scions, of little known and very rare tropical fruits, and information about their cultivation…He has introduced many fruits into Hawaii that were previously unavailable. He travels widely collecting plant materials, and exchanging with plant collectors world wide.  He is currently growing 3 different orchards, which he planted, that have well over 1000 establhished rare fruit and spice trees, and he’s adding all the time.
