DANNY HIZON took a leave from his work in the Middle East to attend to the planting of exotic fruit trees in the orchard he is developing in Mindoro.
He purchased new planting materials from a nursery in Teresa, Rizal that included latexless jackfruit, rambutan, durian, pink guava from Vietnam, longkong and duku lanzones, pomegranate, imported varieties of makopa, Super Avocado and more.
He has also ordered all-makapuno seedlings from a tissue=culturist in Laguna. In a couple of years, he plans to give up his overseas job to manage his dream farm.
In photo, he is shown at left, with his assistant. They are posing with the latexless jackfruit seedlings from the Sarian Farm.
