Fruit Trees

Do any of you have fruit trees?

We have some pear trees that do well each year. Also have
some fig trees that have yet to produce, not quite big enough
just yet.

Planted a satsuma tree that I thought the frost killed, but, thankfully,
it's come back out and seems to be thriving.

Yesterday hubby planted several plum trees for me. That's one
of my favorite fruits!

Re: Fruit Trees

Do you like fig preserves Cindy?
They are so good on hot biscuits or toast.

Oh, we also have some quince trees set out,
but, not producing yet. They make great
jelly!

Re: Fruit Trees

Planted 2 apples, 2 peaches, and 2 plums last year. One plum died, one of the peaches looks pretty bad, and the rest are doing fine. No fruit yet. Well, I think the dead plum had a couple of plums before it died. Birds got 'em.

I sure didn't like figs when I was a kid. Had a tree in the back yard that made a huge mess! And I got to clean it up! (At least, some of the time. )

Re: Fruit Trees

We have a lemon, grapefruit, a "standard" orange, and a blood orange tree in our backyard. We just picked about 10 gallons of lemons this past weekend -and there are still lemons on it!

Cool.

If we get citrus, it'll have to be dwarves in pots, so we can take them into a shed for the winter. Might do that now. In fact, yeah, I just decided!
