Hi Luisport,

Well, I grow my plants in pots so when cold weather comes I bring bring them inside/greenhouse. Here is what I have:

abiu
white, yellow, black sapote
various Eugenia species
various Garcinia species
various Myrciaria and Plinia species
and some obscure plants too

Tomas
Yes i can try that too, but in potas it's more dificult to get a fruit stage...

Welcome Patrick,

It's great to see a tropical fruit grower/enthusiast up in Arlington. I don't live that far from you, here in Richmond, Virginia. Just plant those tropical fruit seeds! I can tell you that it may be a little of a challenge to grow tropical/subtropical plants up here but it's not impossible. I have a small collection of my dearest plants after moving from Florida, and so far they are doing well.

Tomas
Do you have tropicals with cold weather? By the way can you tell what do you have?

For those that were asking about the cold hardiness of Marang, reports this month that two growers here have fruited Marang recently. One is at 28.5 o South.
What minim temp does it get?

2833
Very beautiful Luis! It looks so peaceful. Congratulations on the jaboticaba.
My dear Valerie it's soo good to have you here! Yes it's very peacefull here. We and our neigbours are as a family!  :-*

That is very good. We have good neighbors too and this year our sons bought property adjoining ours. I feel so blessed.

I'm going to look up some of your trees that are new to me. Your apples and pears are awesome! Mine are not doing well but the peaches like it here.

Luis you would be surprised at how similar your setting looks to mine. I don't have a mountain view but there are big hills that look like mountains. (Florida actually calls them mountains) and landscape is similar
I belive that this has similarities... or maby it's a memory of a past life here.  ;)

2834
Very nice fruit trees. I hope they all stay healthy and bear lots of fruit.
I just hope so... well and if some don't, i will go trying!  ;)

Muy hermosos árboles, qué suerte que tenés que podés conseguir avocado HASS, acá en Argentina nadie los vende :(

me anoto en cualquier intercambio de semillas, me interesan los sapotes, ¿sabes qué resistencia a heladas tienen?

de los árboles que tenés, además de la pitanga y la feijoa ¿cuáles son los más resistentes a heladas?
Todas las árboles tropicales estan en la tierra al menos de un anno, el próximo invierno será lo primero... portanto vamos a ver que passará. El sapote blanco resiste a -6.5C... mas los otros resisten mal.  ;)
