Two New Additions

On the weekend I purchased two new fruit trees from Perry’s Nursery a lemonade tree and a loquat.

I love the look of the loquat tree and the subtropical vibe it brings. Hopefully in a few years, ok like 5 years, it will fruit and then I will have delicious loquats to eat.

A lemonade tree is something I have wanted for a few years. It is a cross between a lemon and a mandarin tree and produces delicious round fruit that tastes like lemonade. It already has flowers on it, however I’m not sure it will produce fruit due to the shock of being repotted, but we’ll see.

They make a great addition to my trees I already have on my patio.
