Last Tuesday I planted my mini-orchard. Very mini, but it is what I can fit into my yard neatly. Now I am the proud owner of a dwarf supreme Stanley prune-plum tree, a dwarf supreme Golden Delicious apple tree, a dwarf supreme Red Haven peach tree, and a dwarf Honeysweet pear tree. All self-pollinating (although they would probably get more fruit with another variety planted nearby). All were from Stark Bros. I'm not sure if it was worth the extra money to get the supreme trees, but they were well branched. Although when it came to width and height, they didn't appear to be any bigger than the pear tree which wasn't a supreme. I also added three more Caroline raspberries. I can't wait to see them all come alive in the Spring. Pictures of my mini-home orchard will be coming soon!
