Lemons, avocados, pineapple. These are typically thought to live in Hawaii, right? Well now they’re living in Utah, and loving it here! The start of the tropical move-in was when I was five and got a miniature lemon tree. It is now full-sized and is producing lots of lemons.
The blossoms in the picture above smell sweet, but the fruit when ripe is so much sweeter.
This lemon isn’t ripe yet. Last year my brother took some of the seed from a lemon I grew and planted it. He now has four baby lemon trees!
He also tried planting a pineapple top, since that is how you grow a pineapple. It will be planted in a pot soon since roots are coming out the bottom.
I have become more and more curious about what would thrive here and discovered that avocados LOVE this climate!
