Suggested Fruit Varieties for Southern Utah
Southwest Utah has a great climate for growing most fruits. Specifically, those fruits that do well include; apricots, cherries, figs, grapes, peaches, persimmons, plums, and strawberries. Additionally, nuts such as almonds, pecans, and pistachios also grow well. In the higher elevations of Washington County, including areas such as Brookside, Central, Enterprise, and New Harmony, apples, pears and berries such as raspberries and blackberries grow well. Those who live in areas with elevations above 8,00 feet may find the growing season too short, and Spring temperatures often too cold, for growing most fruits.
