To cover my bases, I've been looking somewhat south as well for what other people
grow, in case steady warming continues. The jury is still out for me so far on
southern pecans and muscadine grapes. There's been mixed success with various
figs and Asian persimmons. The big success has been fuzzy kiwifruit; for a couple
of years now the production from just two vines has been so prolific I've had
enough extra to sell the only local fuzzies in Charlottesville. Heck, I can only eat
several bushels per winter.
Thanks to Michael McConkey at Edible Landscaping for the short-season varieties
Elmwood and Saanichton.
