Apricots - my favourite stone fruit. Have just finished eating and juicing the ones from my dad's tree. They are so sweet - and some the size of tennis balls!
Olives are really fruits and they grow on trees. If green olives are left on the tree, they turn black. lives come in many sizes and flavours so you may need to try lots of different ones to find out which ones you like best.
Citrus reticulata tangerine A comparatively cold hardy citrus, with selections that are reliably cold hardy into zone 8. They should be grafted onto trifoliate orange root stock for maximum cold hardiness. Plants so grafted are reported to be shorter in stature. Grow these trees in sunny, well-drained sites. 'Flying Dragon' rootstock, for example, is vigorous, cold hardy and has a dwarfing effect that helps keep trees at pick-able heights.
Carambola / Star Fruit Tree The carambola should be classed as tropical and sub-tropical because mature trees can tolerate freezing temperatures for short periods and sustain little damage at 27º F (-2.78º C). In Florida, the tree survives in sheltered sites as far north as St. Petersburg on the west coast and Daytona Beach on the east.
