DOUBLE TROUBLE: the Gronert Brothers were the featured farmers in the latest edition of the Grow Food Carolina newsletter. Click here to sign-up for future newsletters.

https://www.coastalconservationleague.org/projects/growfood/

Bernd Gronert and his brother Armin spent countless hours in their father’s garden as children, picking and eating all the fruit they could find. “It didn’t matter if it was ripe or not,” Bernd said, “if we could reach it, we ate it.” This garden of their childhood was in Germany, and now they find themselves picking fruit all day long at Cypress Hill Farm in Ridgeville.

In 2002, Bernd began looking for a property in coastal South Carolina that was cleared and ready so he could plant fruit trees. He planted one tree and decided to grow more after that. “What was I going to do with just one tree,” Bernd said. “So, I planted more.” Now the Gronert brothers own and operate 5 acres with over 1,000 fruit trees.

Bernd has attempted to grow many kinds of fruits trees and learned the hard way over the years, that not all varieties do well in this region. He has grown cherries, apples, figs, persimmons, apricots, and many other fruits, most of which he grew up with in his garden in Germany. He has also tried a lot of citrus varieties, some of which worked well for him. Originally when moving to South Carolina, Bernd thought “Florida grows citrus, why not try them here?”

Bernd has always enjoyed the crunch, flavor, and texture of Asian pears, and he remembers first enjoying Asian pears from trees in his father’s garden. At one point there were 400 Asian pear trees of 10 different varieties planted at Cypress Hill Farm. “Each variety has their own challenges,” Bernd said, “but they also have their own flavor profile.”

When asked what he enjoys most about growing fruit trees, Bernd shared that “every day you go out and see something different. Sometimes it’s what you expect and other times it’s something completely different.” Four years ago, Bernd planted two new Asian pear varieties, Yali and Tse Li. This season, the trees have come to maturity and it’s the first time he’s been able to pick and sell the new varieties to GrowFood. Bernd still enjoys watching the trees grow and develop and sharing the fruit with people that enjoy it as much as he does.
