  • I have 2 huge apple trees and 1 huge pear tree. The trouble is that animals get the fruit before I can. And the pears are too high to reach. I have never had any.

  • I have an avacado plant in my bedroom! lovely plant! not sure if it will be a tree. I planted the seed and it became a houseplant lol.
    outside I have a blueberry bush, fig tree, a ton of wild blackberry bushes and wild grapes. Where we used to live had 3 grapefruit trees, 3 orange trees and a fig tree.

  • I have a Montmorency cherry (pie cherry), a Yellow Transparent apple, a Granny Smith apple, a Honeygold apple, a Gala apple, and two "wild" apple trees, along with two grape vines and a few hundred strawberry plants. We have a dwarf banana tree, a dwarf lime, a dwarf tangerine, and a dwarf orange trees inside our house. I've tried peach trees but it's too cold in my area. I would like to plant a couple of pear trees.

  • We have a 5-in-1 pear tree and a fruit cocktail tree (plums, nectarines, apricots & peaches grafted to one tree). We used to have a 5-in-1 apple tree, but it didn't survive its first winter here.

  • I wish, but no.
    Our neighbors have a few pear trees though and always give us a basket when they are ripe.

  • They love our black walnut tree for some reason, so we load them up with them.
