nature bounty

I really love my little piece on earth... I 've planted many trees plus the ones already here part of a native forest now protected by law.  I have avocados, oranges, tangerines, lemons ( 2 different kinds), acerola --a little fruit cherry like with a vit C content higher than oranges or lemons, delicious to eat like cherries or to make juice usually it is combined with orange or such-- I've just got some grape vines which are going to be planted shortly, sugar cane, pomegranate, jabuticaba -- a little fruit that grows on the bark of the tree which I have already posted here, peach, banana and mulberry... I love to walk around the garden eating from the trees.   I have two big banana bunches on the trees and another just filling up...they will soon be ready to be cut from the trees.

Here you can see the acerola fruit and tree... the tree is 4 years old and this year it really filled up and we can't keep up with it.  It's such a pretty little fruit, and when it is ripe on the tree it's a most beautiful red !
