Still not sure about growing fruit trees from seed? Today’s story will change your mind. Allen the Beekeeper shared some pictures with me a couple weeks ago of the beautiful grapefruit trees in his dad’s yard.
Right now they’re loaded with fruit and as healthy as can be. The cool thing about them – they grew from seed.
How Allen’s Dad Grew His Grapefruit From Seed
Allen related to me that one of his dad’s rare “gardening experiments” consisted of burying a couple handfuls of grapefruit seeds in his yard, then not mowing that area for a few months. Some time later, he had seedlings… then saplings… then producing trees. Now, 20 years later, he’s enjoying (and giving away) hundreds of pounds of grapefruit each year.
Don’t listen to the haters. Experiment! Plant seeds! Win!
Thanks! those are great photos. That technique is my favorite technique as well, experiment!
