Fruit trees can be both productive and ornamental.
Think about size before you purchase a tree. If you want to grow productive trees in a small space (unless you have a big garden), select dwarf varieties or plants that are grafted onto dwarf rootstock. You’ll save time climbing up a ladder to pick fruit or prune the tree, too. Good choices include citrus, apple trees, mangoes, avocados, pears, peaches and apricots.
