They'll never forget how you made them feel! The 'Wurtz' or 'Little 'Cado' was discovered right here in Encinitas in 1935. Today it's the favorite for small spaces because it is a true dwarf variety. Little tree but big fruit that is creamy, rich and buttery for the best avocado toast, guacamole, tacos and salads -yum! This is 15 gallon size, usually 4-6 ft tall at planting, self-pollinating and should start reliably cranking out the avos in first or second year. Perfect gifting for a summer...
Guaranteed to surprise and delight! This one was discovered right here in Encinitas and it's a winner! A true dwarf, the 'Wurtz' is also known as the 'Little 'Cado' because the tree stays small and thrives in a container. But the fruit - they are big, rich, creamy and buttery, just the way we love them! It's self-pollinating and easy care - just needs a sunny spot. These are healthy, premium young trees grown right here in San Diego county, aka Avocado Country!
Glossy leaves, fragrant flowers and beautiful, deep-colored fruit - this classic citrus tree has it all! Great cooks love this lemon for its thin skin and juicy pulp. Less acidic and a bit sweeter than the Eureka. A beautiful addition to any patio, deck or sunny balcony.
'Little Gem' is perfectly named! It adds all the charm of its cousin, the iconic southern magnolia, but doesn't need a lot of space. Gorgeous big creamy white flowers are lightly scented and the shiny deep green foliage makes it a lovely focal point in the smallest of gardens. This one is truly special!
Fabulous bloom with showy, deep magenta, orchid-shaped flowers from late fall through spring along the coast. A real stunner! Semi-evergreen, so there is always some foliage. Ideal ornamental, can reach 20' tall and wide at full maturity.
Nothing beats picking fresh, juicy sweet oranges from your own backyard! Imagine giving this most appreciated and delicious gift for a special birthday, a wedding or to celebrate a new member of the family. It's a beautiful evergreen tree with legendary blossoms and seedless, easy-to-peel fruit. Ready to pick in February/March. So much more thoughtful than the impersonal registry pick & click, this is the gift they'll always remember.
Glossy leaves, fragrant flowers and beautiful fruit - 'Eureka' is a classic! And did you know it's mandatory to have a lemon tree here in SoCal? : ) Eureka’ is ever-bearing - year-round fruit for cooking, cocktails, preserving [try it!] and giving away to happy visitors. Pretty much the perfect gift tree for anyone and any occasion.
Who doesn't love freshly squeezed OJ? Or a Mimosa made with freshly-squeezed OJ? Your giftees will be delighted with this classic California orange tree - so very pretty on the patio and so very tasty on the brunch table. Not to mention the heavenly fragrance when the tree is in bloom!
