I bet they will because the grow bags are air pruning.

I've made the switch this season to all grow bags and air pruning pots. I think I have 3 dozen 7 gallon pots now besides several dozen grow bags. I think I have a total of 3 dozen various types of tomatoes, peppers, berries and citrus in them this season.

I will be interested to see if the ones in the grow bags do the best this year.

Are your avocados still doing well and filling out those 30 gallon pots? I've been wanting to grow avocado but my family is very skeptical they will grow well here. If you can grow them there, I should be able to in Sac Town! Are they grafted to hardier rootstock?


I was going to suggest you grab a blood orange but read in the thread you got one. Mine produces like mad and it's not even in a big pot. I plan to get a Cara Cara and some red grapefruit to keep it company.

My avocado's are doing well but I can say they are the hardest fruit tree to grow in containers. But it can be done successfully. If you come out this month I'll give you some pointers. :)

I agree with you Savina Red  its a  steal at that price... the Blue colored ones is out of stock...willing to wait as we have a weber & another smoker,

but that is real nice & versatile.

Its quite big & can surely fit 19 burgers as I saw one at Walmart...I can see doing pizza on that too...


yes I did pizza on mine and it turned out really good.
