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!

Can we have warm winters AND gorgeous fall color? Yes we can. The Chinese Pistache works well as a shade tree, and as a front or backyard focal point. After it is established, it handles drought well and will grow at a moderate rate to about 30' high and wide so it needs plenty of room. In winter, the leaves drop off and then you'll know spring is just around the corner.
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!
