Narrowing Down Fruit Tree Varieties

There are so many considerations for what trees to plant where, soil type, pollination, disease resistance,  the list goes on and on. This week, Faith, our tree specialist is putting in countless hours narrowing down our list of citrus varieties to 5 or 6 cultivars (sub-species tree types) that are the best fit for schools across the state. Mandarins, grapefruits, navel oranges, lemons, and limes can all make great additions to an orchard and a school cafeteria system, so we're gonna make sure to bring the best varieties out with us this planting season!
