Can you grow apples in Florida? The answer is yes – and not just the type you think might grow here. Since I’m on an apple kick right now… today I’m posting some more tantalizing info… this time on growing apples in the tropics.
The article below was pointed out to me by several folks and is definitely worth sharing:
Before I “retired” as a Master Gardener, I was taught that you can basically only grow Anna, Dorsett, Ein Shemer and Tropic Sweet apples in Florida… yet I’m discovering that apples are apparently a lot more tolerant of our climate than previously suspected. Even some of the classic “northern” varieties can be managed in Florida with a little adjustment.
The more you think you know…
UPDATE: I’m growing apples in Florida on a bigger scale now – check out this post.
