I planted my first fruit trees in 2005, along with a few blueberries, raspberries, and strawberries, on a farm in Nelson County, VA (near Charlottesville) my wife and I had just purchased. What began as a hobby has now morphed into a full blown addiction. I find growing fruit to be a highly rewarding mix of providing healthy/unique food for my family, exercise, science, and interacting with nature. I’ve learned far more from this site than any of the books I’ve purchased and am very grateful to everyone that takes the time to post here. The following is my current list of fruit and nuts I’m currently growing.
