We can call fruit trees those trees that produce fruits as edible food for humans and animals. Examples of these trees are the apple tree, the apricot tree, the pear tree, the almond tree, the peach tree, the plum tree, and so on. Of course there are other fruits which do not grow on trees, like strawberries, cranberries, watermelons and similar, so in here we will see those fruit trees as real big plants with trunk and branches. All those trees that produce fruits as part of their life cycle but that cannot be “utilized” as harvest to feed humans and animals, are just considered trees. They fructify as other plants do, but their products will not be part of a fruit harvest.Every species of fruit trees requests different location rules in order to grow at its maximum stage. Some will need room to expand in an horizontal sense while others are more vertical grown plants. The main most common rule is to let the plant breathe without being suffocated, ... continua

When we refer to the almond tree we should remember that it belongs to two very important categories
It grows very fast and it can reach high dimensions. The colors of its buds are very typical and the
Pear tree has very old origins. It is thought to come from Asia, but it has now developed all around
, and do not let them be covered from the sunshine, but do not even let the sun create shades coming from other taller trees. Every tree needs its own space to grow correctly and to be prolific.You can plant fruit trees from mid October through mid April. Just check every tree sowing details before doing it, because every single species has its own sowing characteristic. Dig a hole in the ground to fit the tree roots. Let the air flow inside out while you get your plant ready to be covered by soil. Before fitting the roots on the ground, mix some water with some mold and let the roots sink in the mixture for a bit. Spread some fertilizer on the hole and cover it up with more soil. Plant the tree and fill the hole, compressing the surface before watering.You should trim the tree and fertilize the soil for a good maintenance of your fruit trees. Pruning, the act of trimming, gets useful when done at least twice a year: when summer ends and the harvest is done, and when winter season is almost over (depending on where you live) to let the branches breathe and the sun to feed the sap. To fertilize the area around the base of your tree, spread some fertilizer; the best one would be the organic animal compost.Fruit trees are easy to get sick because of fungi and bugs. Remember to spread some anti-parasite when the foliage process is done, and mostly before the buds start to bloom. Copper solutions are useful every time we end the pruning, so it kills all the bacteria and potential fungal attack. Sometimes, it is necessary to repeat the process when the first fruits come out or the flowers are evolving into them.
