Northern or Southern? Off the top of my head, Avocados, Citrus, Cherimoya,and Pomagranate.

Get the Ortho book, "Citrus and Tropical Fruits."

JackLord, does the Ortho book tell how to grow papaya and pomegranate in pots?

Right now, we are growing in the ground cumquat and satsumas successfully, and a neighbor has a huge meyer lemon. I've wanted to grow pomegranates and have two in pots now, one of which is blooming. Is that a good sign of future fruits, or must it reach a certain age to bear fruit?

Our tropicalesque garden is in zone 8B, not 5B.Thanks for any comments.
