My Name is George and I live in South East San Diego Sunset zone 23. I have been working on building a square foot orchard on this standard suburban lot. My goal is to be able to pick enough fruit each day for the needs of four people.
This list is from memory and I cannot remember, offhand, some of the varieties but here is what is in the ground.
Avocado: Sir Prize, Reed, Daily 11.
Citrus: Cara Cara, Tango, Satsuma, Valencia, ?, ?
Apple: Anna, Dorsett Golden, Pink Lady, Granny Smith
Apricot: Royal Blenheim
Plum: Elephant Heart, Late Santa Rosa, Beauty
Cherry: Royal Lee, Minnie Royal
Mulberry: Pakistani
Pecan: Mohawk
Jujube: Li
Papaya: Solo
Fig: Kadota, Vista, ?
Cherimoya: Spain, Booth, White, Seedlings
White Sapote: Seedlings
Green Sapote: seedlings
Mamay Sapote: seedling
Prickly Pear: Seedling
Peruvian Cactus: Nearly Spineless
Strawberry Guava:
Dragon Tree: Seedling
Dragon Fruit: Phoenix Red, unknown
Argan Nut: Seedlings
Royal Poincianna
Macadamia Nut: five seedlings as hedge
also blackberry, raspberry, blueberry
always have peppers and tomatoes in the ground,

Of the fruit I have picked here so far, the amazing taste treats have been all the Satsuma mandarin, a Spain Cherimoya, one perfect Pink Lady apple, one perfect Anna apple, one perfect Beauty plum, and a handful of Habanero peppers.

Welcome, George!

Would you consider Spain better than Fino de Jete cherimoya?
