Same here. The trick is, you have to have a couple of variety apple trees to cross-pollinate, but that link will tell you the specifics.
I too am growing some pineapples on the side of the house. I have a tangerine tree already, but want to get a navel orange tree, a banana tree, and a
pear tree going...along with one Tropic Sweet Apple tree and two Dorsett Golden Apple trees.
I also have aloe and roses growing along the side of the house, for medicinals.
My big goal is to start a full-blown garden with a variety of vegetables this spring, but I may not get it all prepped in time. I'll have a smaller
garden in the entryway, around a small fish pond, for culinary/medicinal herbs.
On the trees, I'm getting those in 10 gallon buckets and planting. For the garden, I'm getting already rooted plants for easy planting.
