Fruit trees are some of the most rewarding trees to grow in home orchards and edible landscapes—and because many fruit trees are available in dwarf sizes, it's easy to fit fruit trees into smaller yards. Not only do they produce sweet, delicious fruits, they can also be quite ornamental and provide shade. Farmer Seed and Nursery offers many popular varieties for sale, including apples, peaches, plums, pears and native fruit trees. Most grow best in six or more hours of direct sunlight daily. When selecting fruit trees to plant in your yard, make sure they are suitable for your hardiness zone. Also consider their mature height and spread. Many gardeners prefer dwarf fruit trees because they are easy to manage and harvest. Some fruit trees are self-pollinating while others require another tree for pollination.
