Tall, Skinny Fruit Tree ideas.
Long story short, I need some ideas for a tall and skinny fruit tree in zone 9/10 to replace a papaya tree that disappeared.
Long story, slightly longer... I had a 3-4ft papaya plant growing by an AC unit in the backyard. I went on vacation and while on vacation the AC came out for some maintenance. When I came back, papaya tree is gone. The soil wasn't turned or anything so no one dug it up, it was just missing. I am assuming he stepped back on it or dropped something on it and then hid the evidence. Since I already have 2 other larger papaya's in the ground I am thinking I will simply use this as an opportunity to put something new in. It needs to be something that mostly grows vertical(or that I can trim to grow vertical without issues).
So far my only ideas sending a dragon fruit up a trellis, but rather not do that. If anyone has some recommendations I would be very grateful!
