I guess you could consider our edible landscaping a hobby. We tried to plant a large percentage of fruit trees and edible plants. Right now we have tons of persimmons and the avocados are being picked. We just finished the 100 or so pomegranites. This year we'll have many less avocados than last year. Last year we got over 200, this year maybe 75. We have the Mexicola variety and can get down to 18 degrees and live. Some years it gets cold damage but, it bounces back. There are some very nice things about living in CA.
