Another Hello from San Diego!

Hi All,

My name is Richard, and I am living in the western Carmel Valley area of San Diego. I have had the tropical fruit bug for many years, but since I sold my home in the east county and left all my previous plantings there I am starting over with a new microclimate and a much smaller yard!

One of my main interests is to see just what might grow in my location, usually with minimal to no protection from the elements other than the location where they are planted. So far I my experiments include numerous Eugenia and Garcinia sp. three Autocarpus sp., Spondias, Mycaria, Pouteria Nephelium and a number of oddities from the Zingiber family.

In addition, I have a few Mango, Lychee Longan and Guava plants as well as the usual assortment of stone fruits.

I look forward to exchanging experiences with others on pushing the limits of where plants might grow.

Greetings, Richard!

Lots of nurseries in your area where you can purchase fruit trees. Your new yard will soon be filled to capacity with all your purchases.
