Fruit Salad Trees

Have you heard about Fruit Salad Trees?  These trees are a great idea for smaller back yards if you want to grow some of your own fruit but not look like you have a market garden going on!

There are 4 different types of trees available:

  1. Stonefruit - peaches, plums, nectarines, apricots and peachcots (combination of a peach / apricot)
  2. Citrus - summer & winter oranges, mandarins, lemons, limes, grapefruits, tangelos & pomelos
  3. Multi-Applies
  4. Multi-Nashi fruit

They can be grown in pots and you can choose what number of grafts you want on your tree.  For only $25 per graft, it's pretty affordable.  I wouldn't mind the top 3 trees mentioned above.

For us, it will be all about maximising the space we have available, as mentioned in my earlier post on vertical gardens.

That sounds so lovely. Did it take long before it started to bare fruit?
