These fruit trees are found within a kilometer radius from my house.

This apple tree is on my neighbour's boundry fence, literally less than a meter from my garage. It is stick thin, but you can see lots of apples hanging.

This is a crab apple tree which is only about 5 feet tall ( slightly taller than me *grins* ) but has a very heavy crop every season. I was told by the owner who is one of my neighbours that you can't actually eat the apple but you can turn them into crab apple jelly. I've got no idea what he meant by that. Cannot eat them but can make them into crab apple jelly..... Huh?!? On this street that I'm living, I love this tree the most.... it's so pwetty.

I was doing my Meals On Wheels delivery one day and saw this abnormal tree with abnormal amounts of fruits on it. I'm not quite sure what fruit it is, but my guess is it is a kind of pear. Some of the fruits are huge.... as huge as my Samboy's head ( look at the picture on this blog sidebar )... I kid you not!

I pass by this tree every day on my way to the supermarket ( yes, I do go to the supermarket every day! ) Each time I pass by, my heart will ache and I wish I could have a tree like this in my back yard. And no it's not because I love to eat peaches, but it's just so that I could admire them on the tree. Hehehe.

I have never seen an avocado tree in my whole life.... little did I know that for the past 3 years I have been driving right past a HUGE avocado tree almost every day.... hmph! For those who have not seen and for those who claim they have not seen an avocado tree, I suggest you look at a mango tree, and that is exactly how an avocado tree looks like.

This fig tree belongs to a British neighbour who lives 5 doors away from me. He was the inspiration for me to start my own vegetable garden. Whatever he grows, he grows them well, whereas for me, whatever I grow, the plants struggle to survive.... muahaha!

This is a feijoa tree. The taste is similar to that of guava as I have been told, but I disagree. Can't describe the taste, but definitely not guava! This tree also belongs to my inspirational neighbour.

No explanation required!

My immediate neighbour also grows raspberries. This is one of two on the whole plant! ROTFL! He also grows beautiful apricots and plums ( somewhat more successfully than his raspberries ) along our fenceline. I was too late in the season to photograph them.

Blush! blush!.... Who am I to talk. Here is my one of two passionfruits in my own backyard. What's worse is that one of them went rotten. Arghh!
