First free yourself from the idea that fruit trees need to be in a separate part of the garden to ornamentals. This belief in 'appropriateness' in planting is comparatively recent; once upon a time cottage gardens simply grew whatever was useful or beautiful together in one area. Whether you have a small, inner-city courtyard or even just a balcony, there is always room for at least one fruit tree. To make the choice easier I've narrowed it down to a list of attractive, hardy, relatively pest-free, delicious fruits.

So in return for all your gardening efforts, why not let your garden provide you with not only beauty but healthy, sun-ripened fruit? Looking for a bit more space? Then if you have a lawn, its time to assess just how useful it actually is and consider replacing it with fruiting shrubs and trees. The time you save on mowing the lawn could be spent harvesting instead!

Citrus Citrus spp. Citrus require their own special category as there is a cultivar of citrus for every climate zones and they simply can't be beaten for usefulness and ornamental appearance in the home garden. Every garden should have at least one citrus tree, for the fragrance of the blossoms alone. In warmer areas Tahitian limes are a better choice than lemons if there is only room for one tree. They crop over a longer period, are less thorny, and are smaller trees than lemons and the fruit can be used in a similar way.

Of the lemons 'Eureka' is a good choice, less prone to fruit fly damage than 'Meyer' or 'Lemonade'. More information on Organic Citrus Care.

I have had a babaco growing and fruiting happily in a half-barrel in my yard for about 3 years. This year, it was looking good, the leaves were coming back after winter dormancy, and I was looking forward to more fruit. Then the plant simply fell over, and when I looked at the base of the trunk, it and the roots below it were positively mushy, dead and rotten. Now I have to deal with the remains. I put the rotted roots in the garbage, rather than the compost, because I didn't want to contaminate the compost with whatever caused the root rot.

Almost everyone who visits my garden says, "Wow, what is that?! The big, football-shaped fruits taste sort of like pineapple or kiwi, and the juicy flesh is effervescent, hence the name "champagne fruit".
