Florida Fruit Trees and Garden Plants
Florida grown fruit trees, plants and vines have been sold by U.S. Nurseries for many years because numerous nut trees, fruit tree and grapevines can be grown all year at Florida Nursery- USDA zones, 8-9-10 and 11. Not only do Florida nurseries grow tropical fruit trees and Florida plants for resale to other nurseries, but non-tropical fruit, berry and nut trees are grown by nurseries for you to buy by Florida home gardeners. Southern apple trees, such as the Anna Apple tree and the Golden Dorsett apple trees, were imported from Israel 40 years ago, where these low chill apple trees are perfect to grow for delicious fruit in much of Florida when these fruit trees are pollinated correctly.
Another non-tropical Florida Fruit tree that freely fruits is the Florida Home, (Flordahome), Pear tree. An extensive list of Florida nurseries have shipped bearing size fruit trees to States like; Ca, La, Ms, Ga and Al where low chill temperatures are necessary for fruit to mature. The most popular low chill Florida Peaches are Flordaking, Flordaprince, and Flordacrest, that are often erroneously called Florida King Peach, Florida Prince Peach trees and Florida Queen Peach Trees. The evergreen loquat, often called the Japanese Plum tree, thrives and grows a heavy fruit crop in Florida during the spring. Florida is famous for its large loquat trees that reliably produce bushels of fruit. Most fruiting Plum tree varieties will fruit well in Northern Florida and produce large plump plums in tasty colors of red, yellow, green, purple, orange and blue.
Nectarine Trees will fruit in Northern Florida very well, as will new hybrid cultivars of Quince trees. Both European Strawberry trees and Chinese Strawberry trees will flourish and fruit in Florida Gardens. Fruiting Mahaw trees can be found growing wild in the Florida lowlands as a Florida native plant, however, the Guava tree is widely dispersed in Central and Southern Florida as a semi-wild plant or fruit tree. Tourist shops along the I-10 and I-75 and US-1, Florida highways are saturated with gifts and souvenir shops where you can buy jars of Guava jelly and many other Guava treats as reminders of Florida beach visits.
Florida landscapes are often planted with the Florida native plant, Red Mulberry Tree ( Morus rubra)that is also planted as a fast growing shade and early bearing fruit tree with sweet tasty red mulberries. Several Mulberry cultivar selections are available for you to buy online with a flavor that pleases avid Florida gardeners.
Many Floridians want to grow fruit on Cherry and Apricot trees, but even though these fruit trees will grow in Florida, Apricots and Cherry fruit trees will not mature edible fruit in Florida, because the trees are not chilled enough to form fruit, except, perhaps, in Northern Florida during some winters.
Most Fig Tree cultivars will freely fruit a basket of tasty figs in Florida, and the figs will develop a high quality, if the heat and humidity are controlled. Fig trees are also an excellent shade trees in the hot Florida sunshine.
Banana Tree cultivars are found growing everywhere in Florida, and the banana fruit develops an excellent flavor when grown on all types of soils especially sandy soil that is common to Floridians. Banana trees show promise as a profitable, commercial fruit tree item in South Florida in the future for venturous gardeners.
Olive Trees are being planted in Florida orchards and also in California to test the possibilities as a viable commercial crop. The production of olive oil, and planting olives as a fresh olive fruit tree crop has worked economically in Europe for centuries and Florida Agriculture could welcome the income of olive fruit trees to replace the doomed citrus orchards.
The Pomegranate tree, an exotic and rare fruit tree product of Florida and California, was once planted around most Florida Farm homesteads, and new, recent, hybrid, pomegranate trees offer the fruit tree grower new choices of flavor and expand new pomegranate harvest dates.
Japanese Persimmon trees were introduced into Florida fruit tree gardens by Professor Hume, at the University the University of Florida in early 1900, where the Japanese persimmon, grafted hybrid persimmons were quickly accepted and eagerly planted by the Florida homeowners.
The rare and exotic fruits of the Medlar, Paw Paw and Jujube fruit trees are easy to grow and popular fruit trees to buy for Fl. Gardens, and many new grafted trees of these Fl. fruit trees can be bought online at TyTyGa.com
