|Yes! Fruit Cocktail trees really do produce fruit. As with most fruit trees, they begin to develop small fruits and in June there's a natural fruit drop so don't be alarmed if your trees suddenly start dropping small fruits. It's normal and natural. The tree roots you mention won't cause a problem if they are dead but if they are still alive they will begin sprouting suckers which will interfere with your new fruit trees. Just to be on the safe side, I'd dig them out now. It won't be easy, but it will be much easier to get rid of them now than later when your fruit trees are planted in the spot! Best wishes with your fruit cocktail trees!
