Backyard faces east. I would like to plant 3 fruit trees in containers for the backyard. Will lemon, orange and tangerine do well? Suggestions of what will do well?

All citrus do well in containers. Consider dwarf or semi-dwarf citrus. Their smaller size is well suited to pots, yet they still provide plenty of fruit. Citrus is frost tender, so be prepared to protect the trees if temperatures dip in winter. Good luck!
