My Fruit Trees
I have a confession to make. I grow a lot of citrus at our SJC home, not because I love to eat citrus so much as I just love the look of it growing in the yard. Our house is very Mediterranean in style and there is just something so right about seeing lemons, limes, oranges, tangerines and grapefruit hanging from the trees throughout the gardens. Of course we harvest, eat and juice them, but I would grow them even if we never ate one. In Laguna there are none growing in our yard. Three large avocado trees dominate the garden and apples, loquats, and peaches seem more at home in that space. Maybe it's because the weather is so mild that the citrus never taste as good as when it is grown in a climate with a little warmer temperatures.
