I am in planning phase of my farm in Satara district of Maharashtra. As part of this activity I am making a list of plants/trees/crops I can grow. My plan is to have mix of exotic vegetables/fruits (Broccoli, Strawberry, etc.) and native trees. The collective input from members of this forum will be of great help.
The farm is at elevation of ~3500 feet in western ghats. The summers are mild, winters are mild to cold and dry normally. The rainy season lasts from June to September with heavy rains. The soil is red with good water source. The land is in hilly terrain with small table portions interleaved with some large boulders of Laterite with some unique plants. The land is surrounded by forest from all directions.
The local farmers grow rice, wheat and ground nut. The area has Amla, Mango, Jamun, Jackfruit trees. The villagers have planted few Lime (Nimboo) trees near villages and Fig trees (I have not seen them).
