Well, the peach tree sure looks so green and healthy, I’m sure it will bear wonderful fruits. I don’t have any garden as such or space for such large fruit trees but my mom has her garden and she has some really good fruit trees there. She has mango, jackfruit, banana, coconut, betelnut and pomegranate. Except for the pomegranate one, the others are big and give us fruits every season. Coconut and betelnut bear fruits throughout the year and lots of them too so we sell off the excess. Now we are waiting for the pome to grow and see how it shapes up.

I don't have a fruit tree in our yard. But we are trying to grow some pawpaw tree. It was said that it's easier to grow those trees. And we also star growing some melons, hopefully it will work! I do think that have some fruit tree in the yard is a brilliant idea!

Where I live there is a pear tree and an apricot tree. I am hoping to get to the fruit before the bugs do this year and make jellies as Christmas gifts.

Hello mermaidivy, I don't have fruit trees in my backyard and I don't even have a backyard I am living in a condominium in a busy city of Kuala Lumpur - this is my first reason. The second is that, I don't really like growing plants and I am not good at it.

Hello mermaidivy, I am so envious of your raspberry tree, wish we had one too. Well I have some fruit trees but they are not in a yard but in my olive grove and the trees are all olives. My olives which can be harvested around November to December time are considered fruits but I don't have trees with the eating olives, just the olives which are suitable for oil. It means each winter I can get a good supply of fresh extra virgin olive oil which I use everyday. Locals with eating olive trees prepare the olives for 40 days and always there is a gift of eating olives from someone so there is a permanent supply of those as well.

we have a mangostene in our backyard. It is so sweet and it bears fruit once every year only. Unfortunately this tree only grows in the Asian regions or tropical climate I think.

Hi there ivy! Yes we do have fruit bearing trees in our yard. It's 2 big mango trees and recently we just added a papaya tree. The mango trees bears fruit once a year. Sometimes when the season is good they can bear fruits twice a year. February to April this year we harvested a lot of mangoes. Almost every week we climb the tree and it was fun to gather the mangoes in buckets! We sold a lot of mangoes that we harvested. Our mango tree is known in our neighborhood for it's delicious fruit cause they taste so sweet and people do really buy lots of them. You will never have enough eating our mangoes hehe. Ciao!

Yes we have two wild yellow plum trees and they produce wonderful sweet fruit. We also have some wild black berry bushes as well. I really want to plant some more fruit trees and berry bushes this fall or next spring when we can afford them. I love fruit!
