Do you have any?

I think I want to plant some in my yard this fall.

Would you grow a fruit tree in your yard? (some people don't like the birds and animals they bring)

What kind?

We have 5 peach trees, in our yard. I am so glad they fruit this year. They were here when we moved in. None of us eats peaches. It sucks when the peaches fall. If we don't get to them, they start to rot and the bees and bugs are nasty.

We rent, and there is some yellow plums in the yard. When we have our own place, I'd love a mix of different kinds.

We have lots of beautiful trees on our apt complex property including some flowering and willow trees even but no fruit trees understandably... 

We had plum trees and an apple tree in our back yard when I was a kid ... they are nice to have in one way but a pain and lot of work and mess in another way and attracted bees and bugs if they got to fruit before we did.

We have 4 apple trees. 3 different kinds. I like having them right there. We have always had dogs so no animals are going to come too close

 No fruit trees where I am now, too close to salt water, but at my previous home I had two orange, a grapefruit and a Meyer lemon tree.
