Trying to successfully grow uncommon and rare fruiting plants (and a bunch of Proteas too) on our 1 1/2 acre.  We have around 50 macadamia trees represented by over 15 varieties.  Most are mature trees over 20 years old.  There is a collection of cherimoya varieties, many multigrafted on trees.  The Jaboticaba collection is growing well as are the white and yellow sapotes.  Avocados do well in Nipomo and we have a multitude of varieties.  There are a large number of questionable plants, such as Green sapote, black sapote, pitangatuba, cabelluda, garcinias in and out of greenhouse, and others that are surviving.  The property is over planted and increasingly more difficult to find space for new acquisitions.
