Suggestion for fruit tree and varieties
I want to plant 3 small fruiting bushes/trees on my parkway. A friend has given me a fig that he started from his fig. I was thinking of adding a pomegranate and a peach.
I can't find a recommended variety of pomegranate. All the articles say it gets too cold. Yet I remember pomegranates here as a child. I also had some ornamental pomegranates that did well. I just didn't care for them and cut them down. And yes, they were frozen to the ground one year, but came back just fine.
I'm rethinking the peach idea, as it looks like they may be high maintenance. There are several peach trees within 1/2 block. Any other idea? This is mostly for fun, and I hate spraying.
We have alkaline soil. We get 750-850 chill hours per year. I would assume I'm on the short end of that figure, as I live in the city and there's lots of concrete.
