If you've been to the produce section lately, you know that fruit can get expensive. One way to save some money is to grow your own.

You can start this weekend. Urban Harvest is hosting a one day fruit tree sale on Saturday. Volunteers were out at the Houston Community College Southwest campus on Friday setting up and organizing the trees.

From lemons to limes, to apples and grapefruit, there are dozens of types of fruit trees from which to choose.

"The number of nurseries, the areas you would have to go to to try and find these trees, you'd be driving all over the Houston area. So you can actually come to our sale and find all of these trees in one spot," said Diana Liga with Urban Harvest.

The fruit tree sale officially starts at 9am Saturday, but people usually line up hours before that.

Prices vary. For more information on the sale, visit
