30 Bananas a Day!

I'm living on 5 acres in Southern Louisiana and have recently been buying lots of tiny fruit trees and planting them.  In 5 to 10 years, this land will be full of trees with ripe fruit almost year round.  

 

This is the site where I bought most of my trees: http://www.tytyga.com/

 

So far we have apricots, pears, mulberries, apples, pawpaws, pineapple guava, japanese plum, blueberries, plums, satsuma, lemon, and maybe some others.  We also have LOTS of wild blackberries. 

 

You can buy most of these trees for under $10.  Think of how much money this saves you and it cuts out the middle man! For example, how many pears can you buy for $10, maybe a large bag full, but EVERY YEAR 1 pear tree produces hundreds of pears! And it's fresh fruit, right off the tree! Can't get better than that!

 

And you don't have to have 5 acres to plant these trees, they can go right in your front or back yard! So get online and get ordering or go to your local nursery and buy some fruit trees! 

 

Not only are you planting trees that will bear amazing fruit, you are also increasing the number of trees on the planet which we all know is a good thing! 

 

Please share comments or questions here about fruit trees and fruit tree planting.

And you don't even have to have a front or backyard! Last summer my boyfriend and I planted a satsuma tree in the median of a street in our neighborhood. We call this renegade planting!

Yayy!! That's so awesome Erthmum! I forgot to mention...we have fig too, knew I was forgetting something. 

 

I did the same thing, planted fruit trees at my old house then had to move, but the entire world is better for those trees, even if you don't get to reap the benefits directly! 

That's incredible Erthmum!  One thing I do have is a lot of seeds, most wouldn't grow in my climate, I guess I need to join a seed exchange.  But I could certainly start lots of apple trees! :D
Thanks for the link to that site Erin, I've always been mildly confused about what fruit trees are suitable for Jersey but they have a nice little info page on each state that has cleared that all up.  I even discovered a palm tree that grows dates!  I'm tempted to buy some of the trees full size..I'm impatient.  And I hate that we don't have a lot of sun at my house, not sure where else I can plant but I'll get creative, where theres a will theres a way...
That is one reason why I like that site.  They also tell what trees are suitable for what zones when you are looking at the individual trees.  ;)
Hey Dan, I'm not sure about North Carolina, but I know Banana plants can grow in Southern Louisiana for sure.  My old neighbor had a banana plant and it produced tons of bananas every summer!
You go girl!
Great website! :)  Have you had any of your trees fail from them?  Also what size did you buy?

Hey Ednshell, I haven't had any of my trees from them fail, however, this is the first year that I have bought from them.  In the past I have just bought from my local nurseries.  My friend who has an organic farm has bought from them a lot in the past and has had good luck with their trees.  

 

Most of the trees I bought from them were 2-3 ft. bare root.  Some of them are already preparing to make new leaves! I'm so excited!

okay thanks, I have never had a pawpaw but I  have a friend who forages from wild ones here in missouri, they sound wonderful!  I would love to plant fruit trees, the expense and work for a maybe future has always stopped me.  Thanks for the inspiration! :)
Glad you are inspired!  Fruit trees really don't take much work.  You just have to water them if you are in a draught during the summer when they are small.  Then fertilize them once a year or so.

I really don't put much work into my trees at all.  While they are small, all you have to do is water them if it gets really hot and dry for a long time.  Other than that, you just have to prune and fertilize them once a year.  We have some mature blueberries and we don't fertilize them at all and they do REALLY well! 

 

Fruit trees are DEFINITELY the highest calories lowest work things you can grow! Think of it, you have to water vegetables a few times a week, and then they only grow for one season then you have to plant them and water them again and till beds and and and and.  With fruit trees, you plant them, baby them a little bit while they are small, they that's it, they produce thousands of calories of fruit a season!
