Question about growing fruit in Las Cruces

13 years ago

Hi! My husband and I are new to the Las Cruces area and have relocated from Palmer Alaska for His company. As a lifelong Alaska girl I guess I was greatful for what we could grow but always took for granted the water we had available. My dream has been to have some fruit trees such as peach, apple, plum etc. Things that in Palmer Alaska are not adapted. Is it to risky to grow these trees here? I know Gardening is way totally different then Alaska but want to know what water issues to expect. Will I be wasting my time trying to grow these types of trees? I am aware of the need to seriously address soil issues. I'm just hoping for a small family orchard. Any help will be appreciated from this newbie here. Thank You, Vanessa
