Spineless Cactus Fruit

I have about two acres of high land in Fresno county that can't be

irrigated. It is red adobe soil and there is hardpan in it. Which kind

of fruit trees will grow and pay best? How near may the hardpan be to

the surface before I have to blast it?

It is a hard fruit proposition. Try spineless cactus, the fruits of

which are delicious. Blasting would help if there is a moist substratum

below the hardpan and might enable you to grow many fruits. If your land

is hard and dry all the way down, blasting would not help you unless you

can get irrigation. Presumably your rainfall is too small for fruit

unless you strike underflow below the hardpan.
