The juicy sweetness of fruit is even better when the fruit is freshly picked, so treat your taste buds by incorporating a variety of fruit trees into your backyard. With the right selection of trees, you can have fruit ripening all year round. Here are some of trees that will produce optimum harvests in a warm climate:
Citrus fruits are available in an array of bright colors, offering flavors both tart and sweet. Lemons and limes have many culinary applications, making them perfect for home harvesting. If you want fruit you can enjoy straight from the tree, then oranges, tangelos, and grapefruits can satisfy your craving. Many citrus trees will produce fruit year round, but certain varieties are limited to winter harvests.
Small and golden apples are easy to grow in low altitudes, and their trees may even produce bi-annual harvests—one in spring and one in fall. With proper care, an apple tree can be a reliable and plentiful source of healthy and delicious fruit.
Enhance the joys of summer with home grown peaches, nectarines, and apricots. On warm summer nights when you fire up your backyard grill, lightly grill some halved stone fruits from your tree for a sweet and juicy ice cream topping. Because these fruits do not stay ripe for long, they are ideal for canning.
Tropical and Mediterranean fruits, such as figs, pomegranates, and guava, can give your backyard garden a unique twist. These rare fruits are often hard to find fresh in the supermarket, which makes them an ideal harvest to share with friends and neighbors when you grow them at home.
