Bought a few trees.....
Hope we didn't make a mistake. We went to a Tropical Fruit Tree sale which was held for Habitat for Humanity. Being new to Florida, we walked around trying to get advice about all the different fruit trees. Wasn't easy, there was only one person per category of fruit tree.
Wound up buying an Avocado, Mango, Tangelo, Fig and Lemon.
Came home and looked up the various trees to see what cultural requirements and discovered Avocados grow very big, Mango's grow tall and wide.
We have a small back yard but a larger front and side yard. How would either of those trees look on a front lawn?? I checked with our HOA and we're allowed to plant trees on the lawn but she was surprised we bought trees which grow so large.
I'm not sure what they look like either. The photos online only show the leaves and fruit. I can't find pictures of the whole tree.
My hubby says we don't have to worry because we won't live long enough to worry about them outgrowing our property!
Any advice on what we should do. I'll attach a picture of the front of our house.
There is 34 ft to the right of the house to the property line. I was thinking of planting either tree somewhere in there. That's a southern exposure. The front lawn (Palm trees) faces West.
The last pic was taken before we moved in and painted...thus a different color.
