Warren's House Virtual Tour

This is a virtual tour of fellow rare fruit enthusiast Warren Condon's yard. I was there in November and I took these photos of his yard and the various tropical fruits he grows. Warren has been a mentor to me with school and rare fruits. He has been the source for many of the rare species in my fruit collection and is also member of Miami Rare Fruit Council International and the Friends of the Fruit and Spice Park. So let me give you a virtual tour of his beautiful Kendall yard,
