the Teresa Orchard & Nursery in Teresa,
TEODULO PILI, 62, who teaches at the Don Servillano Platon Memorial High School in Tinambac, Camarines Sur, has been preparing for his retirement.
He is developing a three-hectare farm in his hometown by planting exotic fruit trees. A few years back, he planted latexless jackfruit from the Teresa Orchard & Nursery which has been bearing excellent fruit.
This time, he is adding Duku and Longkong lanzones to his farm. He recently bought his planting materials at the Teresa Orchard & Nursery in Teresa, Rizal.
People like Teodulo are admirable because they know how to prepare for their retirement. Upon their retirement, they will already have fruiting trees that could give them some income.
If one is enterprising, he can buy superior mother trees which he can eventually propagate for sale to other fruit tree enthusiasts.
