Your choices can affect everything about your cultivation experience, including the work you have to put in and how many rewards (fruits) you receive.

Dwarfs are ideal if you only have a limited amount of open space in your garden. They occupy only one piece of land 8 feet in diameter across lands. Although dwarf fruit trees are smaller than others, their
fruits are about the same size, and their shortness makes them easier to prune and harvest. Dwarf fruit trees are not known to live as long as larger fruit trees. They start bearing fruit after 3-5 years, so if you buy a dwarf fruit tree from a nursery, you should always check and see how old it is.

Semi-dwarf trees of medium size, and when fully mature, trees up to 15 feet in diameter. The height of semi-dwarf fruit trees can range from low to 10 feet to 16 feet tall. To keep them from getting bigger in
, you should prune them at least once a year. Sometimes the semi-dwarf fruit trees take a season and produce little or no fruit, but most of the time they produce hundreds of fruits a year.

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 considered decision can mean whether the crooked fruit of your crooked tree will be eaten by animals all day long.
