I was really surprised at the very nice selection of citrus trees they had this early in the season! Usually the area nurseries don’t really bump up their fruit tree inventory until at least early January, and here before me was almost everything I could want! I immediately grabbed the last three Changshou kumquats, and then perused the rest of the varieties on offer. I didn’t write down a detailed list, but if you’re looking for something in particular, they might have it. They even had a few pummelos I hadn’t seen before, so I need to do a little research on those. They also had several very nice looking avocado varieties, but I’m not interested in killing any more of those.
After caving in and also buying an Italian Honey fig and a Cara Cara navel, I headed home and got to work running new irrigation lines and planting. Later this week I plan to head up to Arbor Gate to check out their selection too (and hunt for more figs). I’ll post about it if I find anything interesting.
Merry Citrus and Happy Holidays!
Arbor Gate had a huge selection of Brazos Citrus trees also, but:
1.) They didn’t have any pummelos or grapefruits in stock at the moment (I was told they’re coming); and
2.) They’re prices were $10 more per tree than RCW
When you consider that RCW is/was also offering a 25% discount on fruit trees, you should definitely try them first. Arbor Gate did have a slightly better selection of figs to choose from though. I brought home a ‘Little Ruby’, an LSU Purple, and an O’Rourke (Improved Celeste). I’ll be planting those along the driveway before the holiday break is over.
