Tropical Fruit Trees Brandon Florida
« on: July 14, 2019, 02:14:19 PM »
I'm moving to Brandon Florida area soon. Does anyone know if it's good area to grow tropicals? Is it too far north? I want to grow mango, guava, coconut, and jack fruit in the area? If so any nurseries in the area that sell them?

Thank you.

9b unless you are close to water? More subtropic then tropic.

This relatively unknown guy is doing some amazing things in an area
that is cooler then Brandon.

Here's another guy who's doing some amazing things in Lakeland which is
very similar to Brandon Check out some other of his videos on 25F nights

Thanks for the info. I'll give the videos a look. I think buying a home closer to the bay will help midigate the any cold front for sure.
