Why Tropicals? 
Will They Grow In The Desert?
Q. Why Can you grow tropicals in the desert?
A. Because Arizona is warm year round. Water is really the only missing ingredient. 
    Tropical does not mean jungle or rain forest type climate, it refers to the warmer regions
    of the world with lots of sunshine. And though you can't grow everything here,  you can
    grow a lot more than you ever thought. Click here to take a look at what we carry

Q. Isn't it too hot?
A. Actually not, many tropical fruit trees are grown in climates very similar to ours. 
    If anything it is sometimes too cold, which is really the greatest threat to tropical trees

Q. Where can I see tropical trees growing in Phoenix. 
A. Almost everywhere, again tropical does not mean jungle rain forest, it means warm climate
    so actually nearly everything growing in Arizona is tropical as none would survive in a cold
    climate such as in New England, the Midwest or even Northern Arizona. For non native tropical 
    trees just look around and you will see bougainvilleas, queen palms, hibiscus (Hawaii's native flower),
    lantana, Hawaiian and giant birds of paradise, ficus trees, and all tropical.

Q. Can you really grow an Avocado in Arizona? Every nursery I ask says no.
A. Avocados are probably the hardest tree to grow we sell and we make no attempt 
    to hide the fact, though with the correct advice and a quality tree you can grow an avocado.

Q. If Mangos and Guavas grow here, how come I don't see any around?
A. First, would you recognize one if you saw it? Tropical often conjures up images of
    big leafy jungle plants. Actually mangos and guavas look very similar to an ordinary tree.
    Also most people grow their fruit trees in the back yard, so even if you knew what to look for 
    you probably wouldn't be able to see them from the street. Trust me, they are out there, just take
    a look at our VIDEOS and PHOTOS pages to see trees we have spotted around town.

Q. Mangos and guavas are a little too exotic for me, are there any common fruits that will grow here.
A. Yes, apples, peaches, plums, apricots, just to name a few, and yes we carry them too.
Q. Phoenix is in a desert, nothing grows here.
A. Actually Phoenix is in a very special desert, the Sonoran Desert, the wettest desert in 
    North America and the most animal and plant diverse of any desert in the world. 
    Arizona has a long agriculture history and commercially grows everything from Apples to Zucchini
    Just take a look at the "gee whiz" facts page and you won't look at Arizona as just a desert again.

Q. I have a black thumb, is there any fruit trees that I could grow.
A. Yes, there are many very forgiving fruit trees you can grow.
    Pomegranate, Fig, Grapes, Jujube are a few of the simplest. Want something a little more tropical?
    Guava, sugarcane, papaya, mango, citrus just to name a few more that only require a little more care.

Q. I'm a experienced gardener and what to try my hand at something more exotic but can't find the trees I want. 
A. Experienced gardeners have discovered that many more plants than once thought will grow
    with basic care, the problem has been finding these trees in typical nurseries and garden centers.
    We carry many unique trees such a star fruit, dragon fruit, cherimoya, atemoya, jack fruit and so much more.
    It is our speciality, it is what we know and what we do best, actually it is almost all we do. We love fruit trees.
