Not all fruit bearing plants have to be monstrous 20 by 20 foot tall trees, ultra dwarf fruit trees that reach only a few feet or bushes and shrubs also generate delicious produce such as blueberries, raspberries, and strawberries that are very easy to grow in your own yard. Dwarf blueberry plants grow only three to four feet tall and can be planted in decorative pots on your deck or patio. These bushes have beautiful semi-evergreen leaves and bloom with pink flowers during the spring which blossom into deep blue berries beginning in early July. Strawberry plants typically only reach about six inches in height and are therefore ideal for growing in your backyard garden, or in pots on your apartment deck. These delectable bushes will thrive during the shorter growing seasons of the north, but are also made to survive the longer growing seasons of the south, making them the perfect flowering plants for any region.

An advantage to planting fruit trees rather than the traditional landscaping tree is that fruit bearing trees produce beautiful, colorful flowers during the spring, and tasty, edible snacks during the summer. So why spend the money on expensive landscaping trees which will only flower for a few months during the year when you can have the best of both worlds by choosing a plant that will also grow bananas, apples, or plums? Apple trees are great for homeowners to grow in their own yard because they are easy to care for and maintain, plus grow in many different climates.

Planting a papaya tree to add a tropical feel to your front yard designs, however this type of plant also requires the temperatures and rainfall that is characteristic of the tropical climate. These trees prosper in regions that do not reach below freezing temperatures and have rich, organic and moist soil as they require more water than average trees. In contrast, a date, or jujube tree can thrive in harsher climates with temperatures as low as -10 degrees F and even in areas that are subject to occasional droughts. As an evergreen, the loquat tree is also ideal for growth in the colder, more northern regions of the United States. This tree produces ornamental white, sweet scented flowers which blossom into yellow or orange colored fruits. With the ability of these trees to grow in what would be considered less than ideal climates, you can have wholesome fruits for your family to enjoy all year.

Many of the best landscaping ideas for 2017 involve planting large trees with thick luscious leaves to provide your yard not just with ornamentation, but also shade and even privacy. While evergreens and pines are great for exactly this, they can be somewhat boring as they do not produce beautiful multicolored flowers during different seasons. Therefore, instead of growing dull mono-hued vegetation in your yard, opt for planting fruit seeds that will mature into colorful and edible decorations. Kiwi fruit grows on vines and produces gorgeous purplish plants in the fall with large round green leaves. They can add a tropical feel to your yard, as well as your kitchen as your family can enjoy a tasty kiwi with any meal. A pineapple plant will also produce a tropical design and are pretty easy to grow at home, all you need is the fruit plus a pot and soil and you will soon be enjoying this delicious, tangy fruit in your own backyard.

Determining where to plant fruit trees or vines will depend largely on the layout of your yard, however other factors such as irrigation, exposure to sun, and soil should also play a large role. For example, edible passion fruit plants require very fertile soil with full access sun and constant water supply. Protection from wind and space for the vines to spread is also ideal in order to produce colorful vines of delicious fruits that you can show off in pictures to all your friends. In contrast, dragon fruit plants do not require as much water in order to produce their vivid white flowers and brilliant red fruits. To begin to grow the fruit plant seeds in pots with several inches of well nourished soil or find a cutting from a mature tree. If you live in an area that is subject to frost you will want to bring these pots indoors during the winter, however passion fruits are not indoor plants and should remain outside as much as possible during warm days.
