    All were listed as 10-12' Max height.
    Apple; I got 1/2 bushel in 3rd yr. growth, get as big a trunk as you can, 2-3" and it produces.


    Red Haven Peach; dozen decent sized 1st yr. w/ a 2"+ trunk, super sweet, someone ran it over.
    these are expensive, try Home Depot

    Cherries were small, semi sweet, 3 yrs. before it produced.

    Got Divorced before all got going great. I think it was $20-$30 each tree
    (same for any Fruit Tree, get BIG trunks if you can)

    Most of my old fruit trees my dad planted went the same way. We have a biblical fig that had been cut to the ground three or four times. Produces into November, and starts to leaf out every time we get more than a day or two above freezing. We used to have some sugar maple saplings.

    A lot of the fruits you mentioned are either already planted or on my list to plant. The best I have found for trees and berries came from Stark Bros nursey on-line. The trees come bare root and the rootstock is very well developed. 1 yr garuntee and have decent planting hints and tips with them. I lost 2 trees to drought and they replaced them right away, no questions.
    They aren't cheap, but are well worth it IMO. I was harvesting sour cherries the 2nd year, apples 3rd year, and would of had pears if something hadn't ate my crop.
