The Fig and the Guava will do well in containers and will have decent production of fruit. Mulberry will produce in container, but will quickly become root bound. Plout may be better suited for the ground if you looking for a decent crop besides several smaller fruits from a container. The Cherimoya will produce in a container, but it will be marginal production maybe 5-7 full size fruit after a few years in a 15 gal container.
Grow mainly fruits, vegetables, and herbs.

Thank you so much!!!! Would black pearl wax apple be better suited for container compared to cherimoya?

Do you think anyone will be selling grafted Sapodillas?  (Other than Papaya Tree Nursery.)  My relatives live in the area and have been looking for one for a while.

I lost my larger Wax Apple in a container to a frost a few years back. It did not flower or fruit yet, but did look like it was adaptable to container growing (its a relative of guava, so I would say its a better bet then cherimoya). Though I can personally say that container grown cherimoyas work and the taste was good, like I said production on lower side but you will get at least a couple fruits every year to eat.

Thank you all!! I think I'll be able to plant both cherimoya & wax apple in ground, and leave fig#2 & guava#2 in pots for long term.
Poor peach tree will leave its home and settle for 15 gal pot. Very vigorous tree and fruitful, but the taste is kinda tart.
Now only if I figure out which guava to get ;D

My wax apple set about 15 fruits in a 15 gallon last year so its doable.  Guava produced well for me but can become big fast


Champa nursery in el monte had some sapodi available when i went there last year.

I have a Hardy Chicago fig in a 15 gallon pot. Last year, from August thru October, it ripened several fruits a day. It's only about 4' tall.

Here's more pictures:





Lots of people buying grafted avocados at $20 each.
Never saw those super giant Queen nor Choquette variety avocados! I think one Queen would be enough for the wife and I to consume it daily for a week... :)

The CRFG OC booth was well organized and well run! Thanks everyone for volunteering :)

I arrived Sat 11:15 to grab the last cherimoya and last mulberry. Excel figs were gone fast, fingers crossed I can get a cutting at other CRFG events! Yeah, everyone was taking picture of the avocados, haha.

Just opened an email from Don (CRFG) that yesterday was the highest gross receipt ever!

He added: "We sold out of many different varieties, some early in the morning.  We could have sold much more if we'd had it.  I heard several customers ask for peaches after we'd run out.  And for many, many other kinds..."

It was my first experience volunteering to write up sales tickets yesterday; and it was fun and rewarding to get to know some leaders of Orange County (California) chapter of CRFG and other fellow members.... also seeing customer's frustration when his passion fruit selection that he already set aside to purchase was no longer there...  :D
Thanks for the opportunity, CFRG!
