How much water is too much?
Aloha, I'm new to growing tropical fruit trees and am looking into purchasing a lot in the puna area of Hawaii. I would like to grow everything, I know that's not possible but am looking for some direction for staples like avocado, breadfruit, Mac nuts, durian and others. This is a moderate to heavy rainfall area and my question is how much water is too much. I have looked at some lots and while they are not in a stream they are next to one. Moisture content is high but there are no ponds or puddles on the surface, that are visible anyway. I plan on thoroughly looking at the land before I buy it so I'm looking for some advice on what to look for or to avoid.
