Fruit trees/successive ripening in AZ
We are in the process of making our backyard a clean slate. We want to plant several fruit trees and a garden. I know the types of trees I want and had planed on planting 3 trees in one hole (Backyard Orchard Culture) but was told that may not be the best idea. This had appealed to us because we liked the idea of having an extended ripening season. I'd like to can/preserve fruit and the idea of having huge amounts of peaches all in one month is overwhelming! My question is, how do I get the successive ripening without BYOC? Multi-grafted trees? Or has anyone had success with BYOC? We have a somewhat limited space and I'd like several types of fruit (apples, plums, peaches and citrus).
