Ontario Fruit Trees for your Property
Fruit trees can be a great addition to your household, providing aesthetic appeal when in full bloom and an organic snack when the fruits are ripe. The most common fruit tree varieties available in Ontario are apple and crab apple trees, but you can also find pear, plum, cherry and sour cherry, peach and many other varieties of fruit trees. In order to be able to enjoy all the benefits of your fruit tree, it is important to care for it properly:
- If you have not already done so, your tree should be planted where it will receive a minimum of 6 hours of direct sunlight per day.
- It is important to water your tree frequently until at least mid-October, in order to ensure that it survives the winter dormant season with a sufficient supply of moisture.
- Fertilizing your tree is not recommended and should only be done in special circumstances, such as if the tree shows signs of weakness or disease.
- Pruning and trimming should be kept to a minimum any time other than early spring, as pruning fruit trees encourages them to grow. Most pruning should be done at the top of the tree to allow lower branches access to sunlight. Pruning is perhaps the most important aspect of proper fruit tree care!
