They planted more than 30 durian trees at their home in Kona. It will be several years before the trees produce fruit, but when they do, Janice, who really loves them, will probably eat most of the fruits of their labor!
We haven’t had many opportunities to travel for a year now because of the pandemic. Nevertheless, you can virtually travel by enjoying tropical fruits from around the world in your garden.
