Home Orchard Trees Vary With Locale

To plant a home orchard, select the largest trunk size of the young bare-root orchard trees for home planting. They are quick to grow into a producing tree and early planting gives them a chance to put on extra growth suring their first season in the garden.

The varieties you choose should be based on where you live. Some fruits do better in the southern part of the state. Others are better for coastal areas than inland gardens. Wherever you live, there are many fruits you can grow--even apartment dwellers can outfit their patio with dwarf fruit trees, which are small in tree size, not in size of fruit.
