One of the things that sold Scott and me on our Costa Rican home, even from afar, before having seen it, was the mature fruit trees. Not only to be able to offer fresh, organic and local fruit and vegetables to our guests, but to have them for ourselves on a daily basis is something worth celebrating!
Papayas will be ready in weeks, limes are ready now, and the mangoes and plantains will teach us patience while we wait for them to be ready, later in the year. On the list of future planting are mamones trees, guava and guayaba. Some fruit trees take up to seven years to bear, so we will get started as soon as possible!
