With such a wide range of climate zones and soil types, its no wonder why it is so hard to be a gardener in California. Californians do plant a wide variety of trees that they can choose from that will grow for them, no matter if they are located in the valley, near the coast of California, or in the northern geographical region.
The two main factors when selecting fruit trees, nut trees, or grapevines in California is the soil type/quality and which USDA zone you are located in. Some places do not have an abundance of rich soils to grow fruit trees in, but with proper ingratiation, fruit trees can be grown in a foot and a half of quality top soil.
