|Yes, even fruit trees that are labeled self-fruitful will benefit if there is a second variety of the same tree in the yard. You'll need two apple trees in order to get fruit; two cherry trees; two pear trees and two peach trees. It is true that you need to spray fruit trees to keep insects from getting to the fruit. The fruit spray label will tell you exactly when you need to spray. Feed your fruit trees in the spring, just as new growth begins. Enjoy your fruit trees.
