Our family raises everything organically. We have 5 acres in the Coachella Valley, near Palm Springs CA. Winters are warm with only light and occasional frost. Summers get into the 120 + range. Whew!<br>We raise dates, mostly varieties called Barhi and Medjool. For fun we also grow 46 varieties of citrus, and a bit of everything else. We propagate Orchid Tree poplar, Kadota fig, and pomegranates and would be willing to trade.<p>Citrus we currently have:<p>Manderines<br>Daisey<br>Fairchild<br>Gold Nugget<br>Kinnow<br>Pixie<br>Sidi Aissa Clemintine<br>W.
