Welcome to the exciting world of exotic fruit growing!
Rivers End Nursery and Farm has developed over the last 18 years from a vision of enjoying delicious tropical fruits from around the world and introducing these trees and fruits to interested folks in subtropical/tropical locations.
We also offer bamboo, flowering trees, palms, landscape specimens, natural plant and soil amendments to enhance your landscape.
Avocados season has begun in earnest. We’ve had our Wilson Seedless, the Simmonds, Brogdon, Betas, Days and Miguels. The Marcus Pumpkins are ripening now, and with so much “flesh” in each fruit ( they are weighing in at about 3lbs. ) means we have plenty to experiment with. Of course we have Avocado Ice Cream in the freezer but recently a friend shared having Hawaiian Pie. Our most tropical state has claimed title to this treat and loads of recipes are out there. So this became Avocado Pie week at Rivers End with lots of experimenting and a daily tasting of our latest trials. Today we voted for our favorite and the results were unanimous.
So if you love avocados as much as we do, this is an easy pie to make and a delicious dessert. Next time your at the nursery, pickup a copy of our version—and a few avocados.
Now is the last time to feed your plants before cooler weather starts. It is important that all of your plants but especially your fruit trees, get a good nutritional boost before the dormant season starts. Providing a good feeding this time of year means they will hae the reserves necessary to bustout in Sprping growth. We'll be happy to help you select the product(s) for your plants.
And a reminder about your citrus trees —regular spraying for the Asian Citrus Pysllid in absolutely mandatory—please make sure you do so at once. It is the responsibility of every person who has a citrus tree on their property—both homeowners and commercial growers to do their part to try to protect our beautiful, fragrant and delicious fruit bear citrus of all varieties from the deadly and incurable Citrus Greening Disease.
And when you start your Holiday shopping, don't forget we offer a variety of delicious jellies and jams made from our fruits. And to spice up your breakfasts we have an assortment of tropical fruit syrups. Check them out next time you come by.
For our Upper Valley neighbors - our jellies are available at the EDINBURG WORLD BIRDING CENTER and McAllen's QUINTA MAZATLAN, in Brownsville they are at the HISTORIC BROWNSVILLE MUSEUM , and for our friends in the Corpus area you can find our jellies at THE BLEU FROG MERCANTILE.
Because Tropical and Subtropical Fruit trees require conditions that are sometimes not typical in our region or yours, we cannot be responsible for our plants once they leave the nursery.
*Currently we do not ship plants or fruit to California.
