Garden Fruit Tree

Get the most out of your yard by planting food-producing trees, shrubs and plants.

Why grow your own fruit? Store brought fruit is often picked before it is fully ripen. By growing your own, you will enjoy ripe, juicy fruit.

Even if you have a small yard, my yard is less then a quarter of an acre, you can grow a variety of fruits.

By planting fruit bearing trees, shrubs and plants, you can have sweet juicy strawberries, sun-ripened peaches, crisp tasty apples, and lots of other fresh fruit, garden to table throughout the season. Maximize the length of the fruit season by planting several fruit varieties with different ripening times.

Some tips on growing fruit:

  • Only grow fruit you love to eat
  • Choose the correct fruit for your sun, space and growing zone
  • Check fruit tree pollination - Is the tree or shrub a self-pollinating variety or do you need more than one tree or shrub to cross-pollinate
  • Dwarf fruit trees are excellent choices for small yards. Their are endless varieties and some will even flourish in containers.

Some ideas for planting fruits:

  • If you want a hedge, plant blueberries or cherry bushes.
  • If you want an ornamental tree, try an apple, pear, cherry or plum.
  • If you want ground cover, strawberry plants are an excellent choice.
