citrus in northern FL?
I realize I can't grow it where I'm at. Eventually I'd like to relocate to Florida, as they have a long growing season, and I can grow a lot of stuff there, that I can't grow in my current zone and area (which is Northern MI).
The places in northern FL I'd like to grow citrus are either Gainsville, Jacksonville, or Ocala.
Gainsville is Zone 8b, and has a growing season of 280 days; Jacksonville is zone 8b, and has a growing season of about 260 days; Ocala is zone 9a and a has a growing season of about 286 days.
When I say 'citrus' I am referring to the less cold tolerant varieties, lemons, navel oranges, and grapefruit.
Also I know this is off topic, but how difficult would it be to grow stuff like apples, pears, peaches, plums in northern FL? The varieties I'd pick would be low-chill and the ones that have been bred to be heat-tolerant.
