Fruit trees such as peaches, plums and avocados are easy to grow in South Texas. Peaches and plums require colder weather for fruit production and with our mild winters we have to look for low chilling hour varieties. Somewhere between 100-250 hours is best. We make sure the varieties we sell are self pollinating so you do not have to buy two different varieties to insure fruit production. Citrus is a winner all the way around.
In December and more in January, Sally’s been harvesting lemons from her parent’s Meyer lemon trees by the bucket load and shipping them all over the country. We think they are the juiciest, best flavored lemons ever!
Several varieties of citrus can also be grown in pots if you have limited yard space. Mexican Limes and Meyer Lemons are the two most common.
Many Satsuma Oranges are considered dwarf varieties and are very cold hardy and great container trees as well. Avocado trees can be a little harder to grow, but once they become established they are easy to maintain. We have a great selection of all fruiting trees and now is a great time to plant.
