NORFOLK, Va - With our summer heat and humidity, it can be difficult, though not impossible, to grow traditional orchard crops like apples, pears, peaches, and cherries. Often to do it successfully requires regular spraying to control insects and diseases.

However, there are several crops that thrive in our climate, and are not prone to pests and diseases. Les Parks from the Norfolk Botanical Garden shows us how we can dig it.
