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!
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.
