In Teresa, they observed the growing of fruit trees in containers intended for the urban market. The fruit trees in containers include different varieties of imported makopa, pummelos and other citrus species, chico, duhat, balimbing and others. We explained that the fruit trees in containers are highly suitable for culturing in the urban areas where space is usually limited. The trees make excellent gift items for special people who will appreciate gifts that are different from those purchased from the department store.
