Go to urban harvest . Org

See if they have them listed for our area.....I do not recall seeing any.....

If they don't you are most likely wasting your money if you do find them.....

The local nurseries are your main connectin as they source from the local wholsalers

Try Josephs nursery. On FM 1128 between Alvin and Pearland. Always seem to have a large selection of the tropical.

If you are close to Houston, make the trip to JRN or JRN2 nursery. Well worth the mileage. Also, pineapples are just as easy to grow from the tops of fruit. I wouldn't waste the money buying plants from a nursery.

I bought a peach tree & apple from cornelius. I got some tasty peaches last year.
The peach tree was June gold about 5ft tall at purchase.

Here's what Harris County Master Gardeners were selling at their recent sale. All these should be good for our area.

Good info on true tropical fruit. like Mangos can be found on this site http://tropicalfruitforum.com/index.php
You will need a greenhouse with supplemental heat for success with a Mango.

Just curious, have you tried pineapple guavas?
I have a huge Nazemetz pineapple guava, 20 + years old. Nobody that has tried the fruit likes it. The flower sepals do taste like cotton candy.

I grow pineapples started from tissue cultured plants. Bought online from a seller on the above mentioned website.
White Jade is the latest variety I am trying.
Can't let pineapple plants get close to freezing, they will dieback. Take at least 2 years to fruit.
You can get tops from grocery store fruit to grow into plants .
The latest high quality plants you will have to buy nursery plants, the tops aren't available.

Good luck
RFA

A few of the big contributors at tropicalfruitforum are good buddies. Ed SeIf and Mark Nichols are especially knowledgable about mango and avocado, respectively. If you do the facebook thing, we also have a group on there. "Texas fruiting plant growers". Check it out. Our main discussions run along mango and avocado, but we discuss all nature of fruits. There have been some talks lately about true guava and false guavas, as well as the ornamental varieties like pineapple and strawberry guava.

Currently my mango and avocado are in full bloom. Only a windblock up.
