Fruit Trees

Fruit Trees

Apple trees are the most commonly planted fruit tree, but it is worth looking at other options like pear, plum, fig and medlar trees, as these can also produce good results. Different varieties produce fruit at different times of the year. Early ripening fruit might not always keep well, whereas later ripening varieties are good for storing over winter.

When choosing a tree, bear in mind the potential size it will grow to and whether it’s self-fertilising. Self-fertile trees produce more fruit generally, without the need for another tree to pollinate it. If your tree is not self-fertile it will need to be paired with another one.
