How do I select the right fruit tree size?

Selecting Fruit Tree Size

Fruit trees come in several sizes. This range in sizes makes it easy for people to fit fruit trees into small spaces or to fill an entire orchard. Standard fruit trees need 25 or more feet of space for each tree. These trees live for many years and produce large quantities of fruit. Semi-dwarf trees can fit into 15 feet of space. They live almost as long as standard trees and produce plenty of fruit. Dwarf trees only require eight feet of space. However, they are not long lived and do not produce large quantities of fruit.
