I blogged HERE a few weeks ago about fruit tree sales I found. I've spent the last few weekends (and a couple of lunch breaks) scouring other locations to complete what we need for our plans.
Here are the two peaches (thought I wouldn't be able to find them but I did!). One is a Rio Grande peach and the other is a Florida King peach. Both varieties for our climate.
Kieffer pear...low chill hours and will be a perfect compliment to the one we already have, an Orient pear.
And this a Dorsett Golden apple, to compliment the Ein Shemer apple that we already have. These are about the only two apples that will grow in this part of Texas, both a yellow variety. Alas, no red apples growing in Texas.
And this is the other plum that we needed, a Methley plum. We already have a plum ready to be planted, a Bruce variety, so that will give us two plums as well.
Last Spring, we bought eight sets of these corners, for building the raised beds (more on that when it happens). Our plan for the "mini orchard" is to have eight fruit trees...2 plum, 2 apple, 2 pear and 2 peach...and now we do!
The three citrus will go together in another spot and then we'll have to find a place for the avocado and olive trees. There could be worse problems, ha.
So far anyway, mission accomplished!
