Some of the best and easiest to grow are orange, lemon, lime, grapefruit, apple, fig, peach, nectarine, avocado* (only available in CA) and pomegranate. All of these fruit and citrus trees have been adapted to our climate and there are thousands of homes and homeowners who are taking advantage of growing their own food year round. Here are some great reason as to why you need to grow your own food.
The taste between homegrown fruit and store bought fruit is not even comparable. Your homegrown fruit and citrus will be sweeter, juicier, and more flavorful than store-bought, which are picked before they’re ripe. Because these fruit and citrus are picked too early, they cannot develop the complex flavors and sweet sugar taste we all love. By growing your own food, it allows the fruit and citrus to fully ripen on the tree for ultimate taste.
Store bought fruit is treated with many pesticides and chemicals and unless you do your research you have no idea what they are spraying the fruit and citrus with. Growing your own fruit and citrus allows you to be in control and what you feed and fertilize your tree with.
Scented citrus blossoms in the spring are what dreams are made of. The intoxicating smell and the beauty of the flowers are a great bonus for every homeowner.
Many of our fruit or citrus varieties perform extremely well in full sun and a lot of our customers are always looking for shade trees. Some of our varieties can provide your landscape will ample shade throughout the year.
We like to think being 10 feet from your fruit or citrus tree is a million times better than driving to the store in traffic for, let’s say, a single lemon.
