Temperate Fruit Discussion / Best low chill pear for Southern California
« on: August 22, 2019, 10:07:48 AM »
I live in coastal Southern California. We get 200 to 250 chill hours a year. I am looking for a low chill pear to plant in my backyard. I prefer a more soft flesh than a crisp one. Looking online I was thinking maybe the pineapple pear would be for me. I will need it also keep it pretty small by summer pruning. I'd like to keep it under 10 ft total. Do you have a pair that you would recommend?

I am looking to buy a strawberry tree in Southern California. Otherwise known as Muntingia calabura or Jamaican Cherry Tree. I would prefer a more established tree if possible. Please let me know if you have one or know where I can find one.


I have an actinidia arguta (Male) and a Actinidia arguta 'Issai' (Female). I am looking to adding another hardy kiwi to the mix. Ken's red would be my preference. I am located in Southern Orange County California and looking for a more established plant that will fruit in a year or so. Anyone know where I might be able to find this?

Hello everyone!

First post here. It looks like I will be moving from the Seattle area to coastal southern California. The new hardiness zone is 10b. I am a little depressed because I am leaving behind my hardy kiwis which are on their second year. I will never see them fruit. I wanted to see if anyone in coastal southern Cali has been successful in growing hardy kiwi in that area? I know you can grow some normal fuzzy kiwis, but they are not quite as fun ;)
