Mama Snow’s Backyard Edible Garden

Zone 9B Florida: This is my on-going documentary for my edible garden in the backyard and listing of all edibles growing in the back yard. My mind goes blank when folks ask me what I am planting in my garden, so I created a visual layout map of my backyard and plant lists to share easily.

  1. I would like to ask what your closest major city is. We are 9B and JacksonvilleFL. Curious how Lychee, mango, and daikon are holding up. Also may have noticed Jaboticaba in one post, not sure if we can grow here, any thoughts?

    • Jacksonville is upper north in classified as zone 9A, not 9B. My friend lives in Jacksonville and have trouble keeping her tropical fruit trees alive and surviving the winter. You definitely can grow daikons in Jacksonville. I’m not sure with the other fruit trees. I’m in zone 9B, central florida near Orlando. We don’t get the multiple frosty freezing nights like in Jacksonville. That’s detrimental to tropical fruit trees.
