I’m currently giving consideration as to which crops to plant at high-water. It’s tempting to plant trees that produce fruit that is expensive to buy. On the one hand I think, why bother growing produce that is dirt cheap and readily available, but on the other hand, it’s always good to know where food is coming from and how it was grown, no matter what the price.
When compared with other higher producing fruit trees, the difference in price is astonishing. I love pears and they preserve really well.
I’m planning a trip to a fantastic tree nursery soon to buy some established trees. There will be a few exotic fruits among them.
