Scoop up exotic fruit

When Alexander Peña, owner of Tropica Mango Rare & Exotic Fruit Nursery, arrived in Arizona, he grew tropical fruit trees in his yard until he discovered the best varieties for the low desert. Now you can buy plants like cold-hardy ‘Ice Cream’ banana from his friendly roadside nursery. 3015 E. Baseline Rd.; tropicamango.com
