Semi-dwarf trees are medium sized, and when they are full grown they take

up a fifteen-foot diameter. Semi-dwarf fruit tree’s height can range from

as low as ten feet to as high as sixteen feet. To keep them from getting

to large you should prune them at least once a year. Occasionally

semi-dwarf fruit trees take a season off and produce little or no fruit,

but mostly they produce hundreds of fruit every year. Many people enjoy

having semi dwarf fruit trees because they produce more fruit than a dwarf

tree, and they are generally easier to harvest and maintain than a

standard fruit tree.

 

Standard sized fruit trees take up much more area the then any of the

smaller tree varieties, and they are also harder to keep manageable and to

harvest all of the fruit. If you do not prune them at least once a year

they can grow as large as thirty feet. If you are just looking for a good

tree to provide you with plenty of delicious fruit from and to keep your

yard shady, a standard sized tree would be the perfect tree for you.

Standard sized fruit trees take a very long time to reach their full

height, but they usually begin to bear fruit after only three to five

years.

The best variety of fruit tree to buy would be one that carries fruit and

does well in your area, because a local fruit tree takes less work and

grows the best. Although fruit trees bearing other, more exotic kinds of

fruit may seem more exciting, they usually won’t grow as well in your

area. That’s not to say it’s impossible. You can definitely try to grow a

more exotic tree, but it will take much more commitment and time.

 

Another factor involved in deciding on a type of tree is what kind of soil

you have, because some trees do better in damp soil while others are

better suited for drier soil. If it rains often in your area you would do

well to plant a plum tree. But if you do not get very much rain you would

do better to plant a pear tree or an apple tree. Before choosing which

type of fruit tree you would like, consult your local nursery or gardening

guru to find out which trees would do well in your area.

Other things that you should look for while looking for a fruit tree at

the nursery are things like how sturdy it is, if all of the branches are

evened out, how straight the tree stands, the condition of the roots that

support the tree, the length of the stem, and the height of the fruit from

the ground. Making a careful and deliberate decision can mean the

difference between having the stunted fruit from your lopsided tree being

eaten by animals all day long.
