There's lots of future opportunities for food trees here on the farm. The main difficulty is in digging the holes for them. Not easy doing it by hand! I admit that I really copped out when it comes to this. I paid David to dig me about lots of holes all around the place. Yeah, I wussed out.
I would really like to expand my fruit tree inventory. Gradually I'm adding the ones that I think would be interesting.
In the plans are:
Sapote - I'm not sure which kinds yet. Hey, why not one of each? Sounds good to me.
Tangerines - I love tangerines and hope to add several.
Lime - Tahitian lime for sure, and maybe a few others.
Bananas - I'm looking for varieties I don't already have.
Soursop - I don't know if it will grow here but I'd like to try it.
Cherimoya - will give it a try.
Jackfruit - for sure. I don't know if it will produce in my life time here, but it's a good fruit and I'd like to add it for the future farm owners.
Grapefruit- pink. For some reason, pink ones are more appealing to me. Haven't a clue why.
Pomelo - I've had a few that were really good, so I plan to track down those varieties for the farm.
I'm open to getting other trees, but I don't know which others. Breadfruit won't produce here, so I have been told. I don't know about longon, lychee, or rambutan. And there are plenty of other food trees I'd like to look into, including:
And in eager to add some more of my current residents--
If you visited here, you wouldn't notice most of my fruit trees. I have no rectangular orchard filled with trees lined up in a row. No need. I don't use a tractor to tend my trees. Some trees grandly line the driveway (well, some day they'll look grand once they get bigger). And they line the edges of the woods. I still have plenty of room for more trees.
