Fruit Trees/Tropical Fruit Tree

Fruit trees offer year-round attractive form and glossy deep green foliage, fragrant and colorful flowers, and decorative fruit in different season. If you want quality fruit and beautiful trees, there are a few key factors that you need to follow, such as.

1. Sun Exposure--Fruit Trees require full sun, half day sun or at least four hours of the sun.

2. Hardiness--Make sure before your grow fruit trees, they will be able to survive the low temperature in your area.

3. Drainage--all fruit trees require a good drainage, especially citrus and tropical fruit trees.

4. Watering--Once you achieve soil with good drainage, watering the fruit trees will be easy for you. Always deep water your fruit trees and make sure you wet entire root zone--twice a week in normal summer weather, more frequently during hot spells. Water established trees once a weeks. In clay soils, space watering intervals so top part of soil dries between irrigations. Don't let tree reach wilting point. If your fruit tree is in container, always make sure you don't forget to water and it can be as often as daily during the hot weather.

5. Fertilizer--always use organic fruit tree fertilizer and follow the direction that come with it.

6. Pruning--Purpose of pruning the trees is to remove weak branches, keep the tree in a good, balance shape and keep it at the height that you desire. The following pictures on this website are the example of the fruit trees that we carry at our nursery.  Call for additional information.

Round, often red colored fruit with prominent scales. The thin rind encloses the large mass of sweetly flavored white or red pulp and small black seeds. Some varieties are pinkish or yellow.
Description: A vining, terrestrial or epiphytic cactus, with fleshy stems reaching from a few inches up to 20ft long (in mature plants). The plant may grow out of, and over the ground or climb onto trees using aerial roots. Flowers are ornate and beautiful, and many related species are propagated as ornamentals. They bloom only at night, and usually last just one night where pollination is necessary to set fruit.
Hardiness: Will tolerate temperatures to 104F, and short periods of frost, but prolonged cold will damage or kill the plant.
The plants aren't usually too picky as to soil type, but because of their epiphytic nature, it is recommended to grow them in soil that is supplemented with high amounts of organic material. The plant has been grown successfully in sandy soils. Shade is sometimes provided in hot climates.
The dragon fruit that we carried is a special variety. It produces fruits twice a years.
Ju Ju Be 

 Ju Ju Be 

The jujube is a small, deciduous tree, growing to 40 feet tall in Florida, but smaller in size in California. The naturally drooping tree is graceful, ornamental and often thorny with branches growing in a zig-zag pattern. The wood is very hard and strong. Jujube cultivars vary in size and conformation, with some being very narrow in habit and others being more widespread. One cultivar, the So, seems to be fairly dwarfing in habit. After 30 years of growth in an average site, trees can be 30 feet tall with a crown diameter of up to 15 feet.
Fruit: The fruit is a drupe, varying from round to elongate and from cherry-size to plum-size depending on cultivar. It has a thin, edible skin surrounding whitish flesh of sweet, agreeable flavor. The single hard stone contains two seeds. The immature fruit is green in color, but as it ripens it goes through a yellow-green stage with mahogany-colored spots appearing on the skin as the fruit ripens further. The fully mature fruit is entirely red. Shortly after becoming fully red, the fruit begins to soften and wrinkle. The fruit can be eaten after it becomes wrinkled, but most people prefer them during the interval between the yellow-green stage and the full red stage. At this stage the flesh is crisp and sweet, reminiscent of an apple. Under dry conditions jujubes lose moisture, shrivel and become spongy inside. Tests in Russia indicate a very high vitamin C content. The fruit has been used medicinally for millennia by many cultures. One of its most popular uses is as a tea for sore throat Harvest: The crop ripens non-simultaneously, and fruit can be picked for several weeks from a single tree. If picked green, jujubes will not ripen. Ripe fruits may be stored at room temperature for about a week.The fruit may be eaten fresh, dried or candied.


Mango trees make handsome landscape specimens and shade trees. They are erect and fast growing with sufficient heat, and the canopy can be broad and rounded, or more upright, with a relatively slender crown. The fruits grow at the end of a long, stringlike stem (the former panicle), with sometimes two or more fruits to a stem. The fruits are 2 to 9 inches long and may be kidney shaped, ovate or (rarely) round. They range in size from 8 ounces to around 24 ounces. The leathery skin is waxy and smooth, and when ripe entirely pale green or yellow marked with red, according to cultivar. The quality of the fruit is based on the scarcity of fiber and minimal turpentine taste.

The flesh of a mango is peachlike and juicy, with more or less numerous fibers radiating from the husk of the single large kidney-shaped seed. Fibers are more pronounced in fruits grown with hard water and chemical fertilizers. The flavor is pleasant and rich and high in sugars and acid.


Giant arborescent plant from 8 to 15 feet tall depends on the varieties; usually single trunked, no secondary growth. Leaves are palmately-lobed and short-lived, 6-8 months. Papaya fruit is a berry with a thin, smooth exocarp (peel) and thick, fleshy mesocarp surrounding an open cavity containing many small seeds. Fruit may be globose, ovoid, obovoid, and pyriform, 5-12 inches long, and 2-5 lbs in weight. Fruits are like melons, with orange-coloured flesh and large numbers of blackish seeds in the center. Some variety required to be plants as a multiple such as hawaiian variety and some is self pollinated. Papaya like to be plant in full sun or half day sun and they don't like to be over water therefore when you water the papaya, make sure you water the plant well and allow it to dry up between water times such as once every 5 to 7 days during the summer and longer during winter.
History: Calamondin oranges are considered ornamental oranges developed as the result of an Asiatic cross between the Mandarin orange, Citrus reticulata and the kumquat, Fortunella margarita. Its use is primarily in the manufacture of a beverage and in marmalade. Except for the citron that was known in Roman times, the genus Citrus can be tracked back to the land of its origin: Southeast Asia, India, southern China and Malaysia. Arab traders were the first to bring oranges out of Asia and in the 12 century they introduced the orange into Spain. From there it was imported into colonies in Florida and California.

This Calamondin Orange is an ornamental plant but it can be used to create jams and marmalade, and a sour lemonade drink, but is not sweet enough eat fresh. This variety of Calamondin has pale creamy yellow variegation to the green leaf margins. The fruit is vertically striped pale yellow and green before it matures to pale yellow. Fruit holds onto the tree better than many varieties. Use in a container or as a specimen or accent.
Wax Apple 

 Wax Apple 

It is a tropical tree growing to 15 feet tall, with evergreen leaves 4-10 inches long and 2-4 inches broad. Leaves have a nice scented when it breaks. The flowers are white, 0.75-1 inch in diameter, with four petals and numerous stamens. The fruit is a bell-shaped edible berry, with colors ranging from white, pale green, green, soft greenish- pink, and red. The ripened fruit varies in hue and can be light pink to a dark. If it is ripe enough, the fruit will puff outwards, with the middle of the underside of the "bell shape" dented in a touch. Healthy wax apples have a light sheen to them. Despite its rather plain name, a wax apple is anything but plain. A ripe wax apple only resembles an apple on the outside in color. It doesn't taste like an apple. It has neither the fragrance nor the density of an apple. The flavor is a bit like a snow pear. The liquid to flesh ratio of the wax apple is comparable to a watermelon. It's remarkably refreshing and juicy. Unlike either apple or watermelon, the wax apple's flesh has a very loose weave. The very middle holds a seed that's situated in a sort of cotton-candy-like mesh. The mesh is edible but flavorless. The color of its juice depends on the cultivar of the fruit.
