Fruit Trees & Bushes

In the world of gardening, trees serve as the stalwart pillars that define landscapes while also offering a dual promise of culinary delight and financial gain. Presently, there's a noticeable uptick in the fascination surrounding the cultivation of plants that not only enrich kitchen endeavors but also promise a tangible return on investment. As the pursuit of high-quality, cost-effective nutrition gains traction, the allure of cultivating one's own produce has captivated the collective imagination.

Picture this: stepping into your garden, reaching out to pluck fruits directly from the branches – it's an experience that resonates across all ages, especially with children. Involving kids in the process of growing edible plants not only ignites their curiosity but also fosters a deeper connection to nature. It instills within them an appreciation for the origins of food, nurturing a profound understanding of the abundant gifts bestowed by nature in exchange for a little tender care.

Here are some of our favorite fruit trees.  We usually carry between 20 and 40 varieties

elliot pecans 


citrus trees


The Elliot pecans are known by foodies and chefs alike for their signature sweet flavor, high oil content, and natural buttery crunch. This plump, round nut is a pecan, unlike any other pecan you’ve ever tasted. Only a handful of growers have them planted, so their limited supply makes them a treat worth savoring. Pollinates with a Stuart Pecan.

Citrus trees can be grown in Southeast Alabama. Satsumas and Kumquats, once established can take cold temperatures into the teens. Others like lemons, grapefruits, and limes need to be planted in a pot so they can be moved when we have temperatures below 26 degrees. We usually always have a good selection of citrus to choose from. All citrus is self-pollinating.

santa rosa plum


Santa Rosa Plums are an easy to grow plum for our area. They grow to about 10-15 feet tall and will produce beautiful purple plums. Santa Rosa Plums do not need a pollinator but will make more fruit if pollinated with another variety like Methley.

anna & ein shemer apples


Apples will grow in Southeast Alabama if you pick the right variety. The two best varieties are the Anna and the Ein Shemer Apple. Both are heat tolerant and pollinate each other well.

rabbit eye blueberry 


Blueberries are one of the easiest fruiting plants you can put in your yard.  We typically carry the Rabbiteye varieties, which do best in our area.  Plant at least three for best pollination.  They grow to about 8 feet tall and like acidic soil.  Plant in pine bark and add aluminum sulfate.  

brown turkey fig


A classic, all-purpose fig. The fruit is delicious fresh and in preserves. Dried figs make tasty snacks all year long. The tree needs protection when temperatures drop below 10ºF. Needs minimal pruning. Heat-tolerant. Ripens in June. Self-pollinating.  One of the easiest to grow fruit trees.

muscadine & scuppernongs


Regular grapes don't grow that well in our area, but muscadines do. There are black and bronze types with varying sizes and sweetness. The female varieties have the bigger sweeter fruit, while the males usually have a smaller fruit. However, the females will not produce fruit without a male pollinator within 15 or so feet. Easy to grow, very drought tolerant.
