Fruit Recommendation for Strange spot
I moved around some Texas Sage near my front door and discovered by standing up and spinning around with my arms out (I'm about 6' tall and had a good 3-4 feet of give on each side) that I could plant a dwarf fruit tree there, instead.
About the location: It's southeast facing, with a lot of morning sun, but it will end up being pretty close to the front porch - about six feet away from the foundation. It's in a space between the house and my neighbor's fence, and my own backyard fence to shade it once the sun passes over midday. I would love to increase my fruit production on this spot, but I'm concerned about the half-day of shade. I'm also very concerned about the proximity of home foundations. It's about 6 feet away from my porch foundation, and about ten feet away from the neighbors'.
I've already got two dwarf peach trees, a fig, a small blackberry patch, and a muscadine vine, with three container citrus (calamondin, lime, and variegated lemon). Blueberries are scheduled for a place in my backyard closer to spring, already. I'd prefer something I don't already have.
I'm curious what others might recommend for planting that close to the house, in a part-shade situation. I'm not concerned about bugs as much as I'm concerned about the foundation. Is there a dwarf or semi-dwarf fruit tree (or fruiting shrub or vine, fruiting thornless succulent, etc.) that I could trust about 6 feet away from my foundation? (I've heard horror stories about apples!)
If there isn't one, that's a perfectly good answer, and I'll probably just plant some ornamental annuals or wildflowers.
Thanks for your advice!
