Urban orchards

Nothing delights the seasoned or new gardener than the chance to pick tree ripened fruit in their yard. We have many choices including all the old traditional favorites as well as many sub tropicals than can grow here with a little extra care and attention.  For the smaller urban garden it is advisable to choose semi-dwarf trees that can easily be kept to a manageable 10-12 ft in height.  Each Dec/Jan the local nurseries will stock a comprehensive array of trees in bare root form.  They are affordable and the only drawback is that you will need to wait about 3 years for fruit. Another option is to buy a more established tree in a 5 or 15 gallon size and have a crop the same year as you install. Urban orchards are a specialty of mine.
