Did you know that SW Florida has three growing seasons?
Most buyers from the north who have just purchased real estate in Cape Coral Florida always ask about our gardening seasons…
We are a sub-tropical climate where frosts and freezes during the winter are very rare. Fruit trees and tropical plants grow easily and it is very common to have avocado, mango, bananas, and papaya trees in our backyards. Sound like fun? Head out to your backyard and pick that banana for your morning cereal…..YUMMY!
Most vegetables also grow well, but only in the cooler seasons since many have a tough time surviving our hot and humid summers.
This girl from New England sure has had to learn a lot about gardening in this Hardiness Zone of 10……worth ever moment when I will pick a tomato or two for our Holiday meal.
