Mike's Back Yard

Welcome to my back yard. I have always enjoyed the outdoors and my back yard shows it. Work is never done so you may find a half finished project or ten lying around.

Mike's Orchard

General information on the trees in my orchard can be found at the California Rare Fruit Growers site. California Tropical Fruit Tree Nursery looks to be a good source for tropical fruit trees. I will update this entry when I have checked them out.

Avocodo links

I have 50 of these wonderful trees growing in our orchard. I have found the following online sources useful references on Avocado trees.

Check out the CFRG Avocado Fruit Facts page for a list of avocodo cultivars. You can find recipies and other usefull information at The California Avocado Commission.

Ben Faber, the local UC extension rep sent me the following avocado links.
