  • Grow food without the water bill! Guavas, avocados, citrus, pomegranate, passionfruit, dragon fruit you name it. The exotic parade of cooking and canning will never end if you don’t want it to! Weather for your own use or a little local produce peddling, this garden is an investment that will show in your wallet as well as your wellness.  

    These bounteous fruit producers are highly adapted to long dry spells once established (after their first year or two) but may produce poorly without some water (except for the dragonfruit! She's a true cactus).
