Fall is great time to plant Fruits and Nuts

Fresh fruits and nuts are a delicious addition to any meal or snack. Fruits and nuts offer countless health benefits and are an essential part of any diet. Although North Texas isn't the ideal growing condition for many fruits and nuts, with a little planning gardeners and producer can be successful. The fall is an ideal time to install these plants. Proper planning and design of a fruit garden or orchard can pay dividends later when they start producing.

Selecting recommend varieties is essential for success. Below is a list of varieties recommended for North Texas. Visit the Aggie Horticulture site for details on growing fruits and nuts.
