Advantages of Planting Fruit Trees
Fruit trees are an excellent addition to any lawn or garden. These trees will not only provide a burst of color outdoors, but fruiting trees will also provide you and your family with plenty of sweet, natural treats to enjoy throughout the growing season.
There are many varieties of fruit trees available, depending on the climate that you live in. Most seasonal fruit trees, such as apples and pears will grow just about anywhere. More tropical fruit varieties, such as oranges, peaches and apricots do really well in warmer climates.
No matter what type of fruiting trees you are working with in your yard, it is important to know when the fruits will be ripe and how to properly pick them for the best flavor. Once you pick the fruit, explore canning, freezing and recipe options. These will allow you to enjoy the fruit from your trees all year long. After you have stocked your freezer, you may still have some fruit leftover. What can you do with it? Many people sell it as a way to generate a little extra income. Some give it away to friend, neighbors and soup kitchens to provide fresh fruit for those who many not get it everyday.
No matter what you choose to do with your fruit, fruiting trees can provide an abundance of good food and joy for your garden.
