Because they produce sweet treats, fruit trees are some of the most popular trees to grow in home gardens and landscapes. Gardeners with limited space often grow dwarf fruit trees, including fig trees which are often suitable for growing in containers. Direct Gardening offers a selection of fruit trees for sale that are easy to grow, produce sweet fruits and also provide summertime shade. Most fruit trees require at least six or more hours of direct sunlight daily. To select the best fruit trees for your yard or orchard, make sure they are suitable for your hardiness zone.

Some fruit trees require another tree for pollination while others are self-pollinating.
