Welcome to the exciting world of exotic fruit growing!

We also offer bamboo, flowering trees, palms, landscape specimens, natural plant and soil amendments to enhance your landscape.
SPRING in South Texas is nearly over - mangos are blooming, the citrus smells delicious, and the sugar apples are startiing the flush out with new growth. If you are going to getting your planting done in the spring - you had better hurry.
And of course you should be feeding all of your plants - flowers and bearing alike to make sure they have plenty of nutrition to prepare for the long hot summer ahead of us. We have a variety of products available to fit the nutritional needs of your particular plants.Many of your fruiting trees need to N-P-K and Mg now but not the Sugar Apples. And with our alkaline soils, most of the trees also need a foliar nutrient spray with things like Mn Zn and iron. Chelated soil drenches of iron are also good at this time. As always, be on the look out for pests and diseases.

We have been harvesting some lovely Black Sapote this year along with the exceptional Sapodillas. You can find our fruit at several of the Valley's Farmers Markets including Brownsvile and South Padre Island with Franne and the McAllen GrowNGrowers Market with Seth.
And a reminder about your citrus trees —regular spraying for the Asian Citrus Pysllid in absolutely mandatory—please make sure you do so at once. It is the responsibility of every person who has a citrus tree on their property—both homeowners and commercial growers to do their part to try to protect our beautiful, fragrant and delicious fruit bearing citrus of all varieties from the deadly and incurable Citrus Greening Disease.
