Great Fruit Tree Options for Florida
There are many excellent fruit tree options for Florida. As a landscape designer or architect, your job is to find the perfect fruit trees for your clients. Fruit trees make excellent additions to any landscape, residential or commercial. Therefore, here are some exceptional fruit tree choices for your projects:
- Mango- Worldwide, this fruit is potentially the most enjoyed and desired. In Florida, people have been growing mango trees for more than 100 years. Mangoes produce their fruit for harvesting in the summer months, and their fruits are very high in vitamins A and C. These are generally small to medium-sized trees and don’t typically surpass 15 feet in height.
- Avocado- Florida gardens look gorgeous with avocado trees. Avocados can produce in early, mid, and late seasons; you just need to pay attention to which variety you choose. If your clients want year-round fruit, it’s not a bad idea to plant trees from all three seasons of production. Keep in mind that avocado trees require well-drained soil.
- Lychee- Pine Island, where Palmco is located, is a large commercial producer of these big trees. Lychee thrives in the Southwest Florida climate and will produce fruit after about 3 to 5 years. Like avocado trees, lychees prefer well-drained soil but need some wind protection. They will fruit between late May and early July.
- Carambola- You may know these better as star fruit. Carambola trees make great ornamental additions to any landscape and produce vast amounts of fruit from July to September, then again from November to February. Carambolas need protection from the wind, well-drained soil, and sunny locations. Their fruit has a sweet citrusy flavor and is delicious in salads and beautiful as drink garnishes.
- Papaya- If you are working with a smaller area, but your client still wants a fruit tree, papayas are the perfect solution. They fit small spaces well because they grow very upright. Papayas will produce fruit all year long and can be grown from seed. Their fruit is delicious and well-loved in Florida.
- Citrus– Of course, this label encapsulates a wide array of different fruit trees, most of which can all be successfully grown here in Florida. If you are planting citrus trees, we suggest that you keep them at least 15 feet apart from other trees and away from structures and septic tanks.
