Need fruit tree suggestions for Northern California
My husband and I recently purchased a house in Sonoma County. We've hired a landscaper for our backyard and I need fruit tree suggestions. I love to cook but I've never been much of a gardener. Now is my chance to dig in, so to speak.
We're talking about espaliered apples and pears and three fruit trees (all semi-dwarf). We know that we want a Santa Rosa plum and probably an apricot and a nectarine or peach tree. Really good flavor is what we're looking for. Any favorites for the trees that we are considering? I've always loved Blenheim apricots but I don't know if they're good to grow here. If not, any other apricot suggestions? I love Bartlett, Comice and Anjour pears. I like just about every apple. My husband doesn't care for Golden Delicious.
