> Florida's double whammy -- "...abandoned lots left behind by would-be developers have become a breeding ground for a plague that is killing thousands of the state's orange trees." ~ WSJ

> Many non-commercial citrus growers in Arizona are planting Vietnamese variety guavas, which seem to repel the pests that carry the citrus-greening (yellow dragon) bacteria that is killing off Florida's oranges. At least that's what I'm hearing from others in the Arizona Rare Fruit Growers. I have one guava tree started in our yard and plan to add another. ~ link

I was helping in the AZRFG greenhouse last Saturday and noticed that there are quite a few of the said guava trees which will be available for purchase at the annual fall plant sale, 8 a.m. to 2 p.m., THIS SATURDAY, October 30th, at the Maricopa County Agricultural Extension Office, 4341 E Broadway Rd, in Phoenix. You can also tour the demonstration gardens that the various ag organizations have maintain there. ~ link (.pdf)
