Fruit Trees in Texas

Posted by insteng 8 (My Page) on

I have property about two hours south of Dallas. I have been trying to plant a variety of fruit trees on the place. I have a couple very large pecan trees, and a large fig tree there now. This year I planted peach, plum, pears, and blackberry plants. I will get some blueberry plants from my neighbor next year. I would like to get some apple trees. I am looking at Fuji, Golden Delicous, and Granny Smith. Is there any other varities that would be good for the area? Also is there any other type of fruit trees that you would recommend? I have 56 acres so I have plenty of space to experiment.

RE: Fruit Trees in Texas

I'd try a fuyu persimmon; eureka or giombo or hichaya persimmon; some jujube's-li, land, sugar cane. Also a Tomcot apricot. I hear good things about Mollies Delicious, I'm planting one now. Dallas is marginal for pomegranates but should do well for you, maybe a wonderfull or a sweet. My celeste fig is great

My favorite nursery is Womacks; you might google love creek orchards for some apple ideas; google lightsey farms to see what grows well in Mexia;google dallas fruit grower for a good blog
