The Q&A Archives: Selecting fruit trees

Question: I want to plant some fruit trees in the spring. I have plenty of room. What kind of trees should I plant: semi dwarf, standard, or comspur? Joseph Sue Stang CT

Answer: You can plant a whole orchard with a mix of fruit trees based on your desire for fruit. I'd stay with semi-dwarf varieties that are smaller and easier to maintain. If you live in Connecticut (it's hard to tell from your e-mail address), you can grow cherries, plums, pears, peaches and apples easily. The following catalog has a good selection to start with, Stark Brothers Louisiana, MO 800-325-4180
