Some ornamental fruit trees, like the ornamental pear, are best planted away from walkways and buildings. They drop small inedible fruits on the ground in the fall which can stick to shoes, walkways and stairs creating a big mess. In the spring, ornamental fruit trees drop blossoms that can also stick to your shoes -- which can end up on your carpets and floors.
