Fruit trees can be found growing well at pH values ranging from as low as pH 5.0 to as high as pH 8.0. A soil pH of 6.2 to 6.7 is generally recommended, to assure that nutrients are readily available to roots. If you don't know your soil's pH, have it tested. The test results will include recommendations for amending the soil with lime or sulphur if the pH is extremely high or low.
