Wow! You have more questions than I have room to answer in this forum so I'll direct you to a terrific website hosted by the University of California which addresses each and every one of your concerns, from tree selection to planting and after care. Visit the site at http://homeorchard.ucdavis.edu... and toggle each of the categories on the left hand side of the page. You'll find tons of helpful information to get you started on your own backyard orchard. Best wishes with your project!
