You can grow your own organic garden fruits in your backyard and save money on your grocery bill. Some will grow easily and naturally in your garden. Take advantage and plant some of them. Others are a bit more difficult but give them a try. Turn your backyard into your grocery store produce aisle and grow healthy fruits without chemicals.
I love fruit, don't you? Berries and melons do very well in the backyard. When I was a little girl in New York State, it seemed that so many fruits were growing either in our own garden or in one of our family members' gardens. Watermelon, casaba, cantaloupe, honeydew, strawberries, blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, grapes, and even apple trees were everywhere.
Depending on where you live, you could have oranges, grapefruit, tangerines, pineapple, or bananas, apples, plums, cherries, pears, peaches, apricots, and plums in your yard. Many of these trees grow very well in Texas. My in-laws had a beautiful apple orchard for many years before selling their ranch.
Above is a photo of one of the miniature orange trees we planted in our backyard. They are so cute. The oranges are pretty sour so far.
Fruit is delicious and it tastes great. It is filled with fiber and vitamins and is great for dessert, plain, topped with whipped cream, or fixed up into cakes, pies, cookies, tarts, turnovers, muffins, quick breads, and in and on top of ice cream. Fruit is great for breakfast as is or as juice to go along with a balanced breakfast. Strawberries or bananas are great on cold cereal and in hot cereal. I usually have fruit as a mid-morning snack and as dessert at lunch.
You can make your own jams and jellies out of the fruit you grow if you plant enough. We did this for the first time when we were living in Colorado Springs with a huge garden. It was fun and we learned a lot.
This section links to our fruit pages and more will go up as time goes on. Try one fruit at a time in your garden and see how it goes. Technically, I know tomatoes are fruit, but I consider them to be vegetables so they are with our vegetable section. So are pumpkins and rhubarb, even though you can make deliciously sweet pies with them.
David's Garden Seeds And Products does not sell live plants or trees so we have very few types of garden fruits for sale. We bought our fruit and nut trees at Home Depot.
I will share growing tips and also recipes for you to try and I will invite our readers to share their recipes with all of us as well.

"Will definitely order from David's Garden Seeds in the future! The
seed-starting tray that I ordered was sent and received in a timely
manner, and, as expected, is very well-made. In addition, the seller
responds to messages very promptly and politely, which is a rarity in a
day and age when a person generally gets stuck on the phone with
elevator music for an eternity!"
