Fruit Trees that Don’t Survive in San Diego, Riverside, San Bernardino, Orange County, Los Angeles and elsewhere in southern California


 

We are often asked for these popular and desirable trees, but they just don’t grow well here – they die in our winters so we will not sell them.  We are happy to pass along our decades of nursery-growing experience and knowledge to you.  If you have your heart set on one of these, let us recommend trees that will work well with your lifestyle and in your climate, and thrive and produce beautiful and delicious fruit for the long-term.
