Fruit Trees at ~60 degree's year round possible?

Posted by Tapar 5 (My Page) on

Howdy,am looking for some advice on indoor fruit tree's. I am hoping I can find a variety or two that could handle living in 60-65 degree's during the summer, and up to 72 degree's in the winter. I don't know if it is possible to find a variety that can handle those temps and still produce fruit. Is this a fruitless (lol) search or does anyone have any suggestions? Thanks!!

Look for tropical species. Pineapple (not a tree I know, but I love'em), Guava, Strawberry Guava (yummy). The trees are smallish and don't need a cool rest to set fruit. Although they don't need the cold, they do need good lighting. If you don't have a sunroom with light pouring in, the trees will be all but leafless, twisted and etiolated.
