A routine trip to the local plant nursery — and a very good nursery it is too — was enlivened by some fairly manky-looking small trees. They seemed quite out of place among the bedding plants and tender annuals, so off I went to investigate. And, boy! was I surprised. Macadamia, Haas Avocado, Litchi, Cherimoya, Guayabay (Guava, but not sure whether it is Psidium or one of the others.) and two kinds of Mango, Kent and Osteen. Now, I know it has been hot here, but will any of these fruit reliably in Italy? Osteen is apparently grown commercially in Spain, but what about the others?
Anyway, I only had my mobile phone with me, but here are some pictures.Show on map
