What are you growing in riverside?
« on: December 25, 2020, 03:13:32 PM »
Iím moving from Fresno to riverside (on the slopes of box springs mountain by UCR) From Fresno. Iíve been able to grow healthy fruiting mango, avocado etc but I think Riverside will provide much more success.

How much large mangoes are there in riverside? The neighborhood Iíll be moving into has tons of agave attenuata, king palm, and frost sensitive euphorbia that show no winter or summer damage, so I think Iím in a nice frost free location.

Who here is in riverside? Iíd love to connect once I move in!

Hello mate,

I am near Riverside. Mango is still elusive for me, but I could grow pretty much everything here. Talking about mangoes and jabocotiba, let me introduce you to my friend, hawkfish007, but his forum name should have been socalfruitemperor. I'd consider him king of mangoes and jabocotiba in southern California. He's been very successful with them. He has all of the top varieties here. As for me, I am still struggling with VP, NDM, and LZ.

Thank you! What do you think is giving you trouble? The wind? Heat? In Fresno we get hotter in summer and far colder in winter and I've been growing them without any issue so far.

Combination of noob inexperience and other factors. I hope I have learned my lesson.
