What fruit trees grow in florida


What fruit trees grow in florida?

Hello All, I recently bought a house in Floria, it has very little fruit trees because the previous owners planted them all. I am thinking of buying fruit trees. I was hoping to get some suggestions on what I can buy. I really don't know much about trees. Thanks!

I've got an awesome list of trees in my florida forum. You can also look on ebay. If you have an ebay site, I'll send you the links to it. I do have some questions though, if you don't mind. I found this site, but you don't see a link to buy these at all. I'm wanting to buy trees in florida but I don't want to find out I have all of these trees before I buy and have them delivered to my house. Are these trees only sold by nurseries?

If you can wait, your first big mistake is getting a tree in florida, you cant. You will freeze. You will kill it. It will be in the worst shape that can be imagined.

Do not buy a tree without being prepared for it. What ever it looks like in the store, it will look like absolute shit when you put it outside.

I have to repeat this because people tend to ignore it, but I will repeat it anyway.

Yes, if you don't prepare you will kill your trees because the nights will get too cold and the days will get too hot for the trees to survive.

Are they sold by nurseries? or are they all sold in florida? If all are sold in florida, then you might as well do as I did and buy a nursery. Why not look around to see where the best ones are being sold at a good price. They are in the nurseries of course. And if it's a Christmas tree, it needs a winter wrap first, to protect it.

My trees were bought at a nursery. They live outside all the time and never freeze. I have them for over 30 years now. I am amazed they live the way they do with me for so long.

I've seen many posts here by people who freeze their trees in the fall. I can understand freezing the trees for the holiday. If they are just purchased and in a florida nursery, I guess the trees will survive the thawing. But I always thought that the idea was to freeze them so they don't rot.

Yes, my father always froze all of his Christmas trees in his nursery in Ohio. We didn't have heat or gas to keep them alive during the summer and they always stayed healthy in the winter. But we didn't have the same winters we had now.

We have always had to keep our outside Christmas trees alive and well, and they don't freeze here in southern Indiana. My husband has been buying small trees from us for a long time now. He plants them in our garden and they have been doing just fine ever since.

I keep all my Christmas trees outside all year long in a large shed. I don't know if they freeze here in Indiana either. I would keep them indoors if I lived in a place where it gets below freezing. You may have to figure out where you live and plan accordingly.

The best thing you can do is freeze them. I live in the North East and don't freeze my Christmas trees but they take care of all our fruit, they are self seeding by April and can be transplanted for the following year. I've had my trees for 10 yrs and some are 18 yrs. They are always in full leaf no matter what the weather is like, they grow tall and then drop. I have never had a disease or insect problem on any of my trees and only ever had to use my hose to water once. I have to say that freezing is the best thing to do. Good Luck. :)

I have a big maple in my back yard and a little one in front. We are in a very cold climate and my hubby doesn't have room for his big ones.

The last one he bought was in Jan for a Christmas tree and the needles were black. I said "Do you really want a black tree"? He said yes. So he took it to a tree service who gave him a quote and he said to do it as soon as I could. So he took it in the car and I took him out to his old stand. When we got there they had a trailer loaded with fresh tree.

So we picked out a small tree and it only took 10 mins to get home. When we got home I started pulling the needles off. One needle broke off and I dropped it. I ran to the kitchen sink to fill it and I found a spider in there. The spider had been feeding on one of the needles I dropped.

My advice if you live in the north is to plant the seedlings in September so you have time to plant them out for spring. That way if you have to lose a few seedlings in the winter you can replace them in a few months.

I can't remember the source but a couple of years ago, some new growth trees were planted. There were lots of them planted in small pots, like 6" pots. These are new small growth seedlings. In one pot, I saw a single acorn.

There was some concern the pot didn't have enough soil. The acorn survived to become an oak tree. It is small, just 2.5m wide, but with an estimated age of 80-120 years old. It's just a single acorn!

So I have an idea how to get you started. We live in an area where we get snow in October. So, we start all our trees in pots in June. Then we bring them inside in November or December, put them in a garage, and put them in a garage outside to keep dry. We have had some wonderful trees from this method. I used to water mine on top of the door once a week or so
