Rare Fruits

The other day after we picked up Arch from school, we headed straight to the rare fruit nursery. We were all excited to see this place that was just five minutes away from our house.


It was much bigger than we had imagined and quite overgrown which gave it more of a mysterious and enchanted feel. We had to duck to get through many of the passageways. It was a bit of an adventure.


We found lots of rare fruits, many that we hadn't seen before. We got to sample a few. My favorite was the White Sapote. I'd never tried it before and it was delicious!!


 Archie found some Pears that were really great too. They had a few pomegranate varieties that will grow well in our area which we want to get as soon as we have our orchard in order.


They had dragon fruit, passionfruit, different sorts of melons and mangos the majority of which I had never heard of or seen before.




We saw some enormous, fuzzy and varied leaves that were all so different from one another and so beautiful in their individuality.




 


Its amazing how many beautiful things you can find right around your area when you are looking for them! 



There is a cactus nursery nearby which we will have to check out next!
