EZ Pick Fruit Trees
by Charlie Nardozzi
Growing apples, peaches, pears, and other fruit trees is limited in today's modern yards where there often isn't room for large 20-foot-tall fruit trees. Plus, homeowners don't want to buy all the spraying and pruning equipment needed to care for such large trees. Even though there are dwarf varieties of some favorite fruit trees, these 12-foot-tall trees are still larger than most homeowners can easily manage.
Now L.E. Cooke Nursery has developed a line of naturally dwarf trees that grow only 6 to 10 feet tall. The EZ-Pick fruit trees produce far less fruit than standard varieties, making them perfect for small families. The best part is they're trained to have low branches so the fruit is 4 to 6 feet off the ground. They're easy to pick, prune, spray, and maintain.
