hello I'm starting a new veggie plot behind a greenhouse I'm in the process of building . The spot is surrounded on all sides and relatively sheltered. I was wondering there are any hardier cultivars of some tropical fruit such as citrus that would be able to handy some frost ( as this spot may experience some El Paso weather is unpredictable) and are dwarf or can be wall trained?

Howdy there Josh 😁
Just saw your question.
City i live in, zone 8 and 9, run right through the middle.
Tropicals i know of don't need greenhouse, and i belive are most all available in dwarf or semi-dwarf.
Persimmon, fig, pomegranate. Any citrus, allthough citrus will need some protection for long durations of frost. Some old fashion Christmas lites, the kind that get warm/hot will do the job.
Save the greenhouse for the real tropical stuff.
😎😎😎




Anything i say, could be misrepresented, or wrong.
