I'm a hobbyist, wondering about growing fruit in Sarasota. I live on a standard lot, and I am looking for a non-deciduous fruit tree for my front yard.  Something I can keep at 15 ft or so, not something that wants to be 40 ft. tall.  Any suggestions of an easy fruit tree to try? 
Also, I have an Oro Negro avocado in a pot.  Any idea if it will grow well in Sarasota in the ground?

Tropical Fruit Discussion / Re: Barbados Cherry can't set fruit

Mine started fruiting right before two years in the ground. What has been consistent with this tree is that it doesn't fruit during South Florida's summer heat if planted in full sun - it blooms but doesn't set fruits or the fruits come out misshaped or never reach maturity. Mine is blooming right now and I already see the pollinators hovering around (some sort of large bees. )  The inset picture was taking in October last year, so I'm expecting to start eating these delicious cherries soon. The season should last until May-June next year.

As a side note, my tree is located on the east side of the house, which was the side that received the most damage from hurricane Irma, but luckily this tree was intact - not a single broken branch. I'll post a picture later.

Yes, thanks Serg for posting that, very helpful  :D

Zands, we certainly need all the help we can get, thank you!!

John, yes that's why I only want upper 30's to low 40's for lows so I don't get a killer freeze   ;)...and we certainly don't want South FL to get any freezes or we are all toast!!

Cherimoya  ARE NOT true to seed also a ungrafted tree takes much longer to produce than a grafted tree  best to plant the seeds now and graft on them next year. i have one of my trees that always fruits early so i have fresh seeds now if you want to come by and get a few.         Patrick
