Trees! Fruit! Fruit Trees!

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Anyone have fruit trees?  I'm trying to add some fruit trees to my yard (I'm in the rainy coastal pacific northwest).  This winter I planted three types of apples (Fuji, Pink Lady, Crispin's Golden Pippen), a frost Peach and a Desert King fig tree.  I also planted some large blueberry bushes that are supposed to produce this year, per the nursery.  I have another tree that needs to come down in the yard (dead when we bought the house in Nov) and I am thinking of a cherry tree.  Any advice on fruit trees?  Anyone else want to share about their dreams of a orchard?  Or, better still, about their actual orchard?

Your best bet is to contact your local country agricultural extension office.  Usually connected to a local university.  They can tell you what varieties grow well in your area, and hook you up with suppliers.  I put in a small Back To Eden orchard last summer.
