All fruit trees require lots of sunshine and plenty of water so planting them near one another is fine. The spacing depends upon whether you are growing standard, dwarf or semi-dwarf trees. Standard trees can have a 25' wide canopy and you don't want the trees touching so 25' apart is fine. Semi dwarf trees are usually half the size so you can plant them 10-15- apart. Check the labels for the mature sizes of the trees and provide that much room between them. Be sure to position them so they will not shade each other out as they mature. Best wishes with your edible landscape!
