You would be surprised! LOL! There's so many unusual trees which grow here. I went through a list a few years back.

Here's just a few tree names: custard tree (Annona), scrambled-egg tree (Cassia surrattensis), star apple (Chrysophyllum cainito), jack fruit (Artocarpus heterophyllus), chewing gum or chicle tree (Manilkara chicle), eggfruit (Pouteria)...this is just a little taste of the exotic trees which grow here in San Diego. I have photos posted on GoY of all these trees growing here.
