Home Garden Fruit Trees in Arkansas

Careful planning, preparation, and care of fruit trees are critical for success. Attention must be given to site selection, variety selection, rootstock selection, weed control, irrigation, fertilization, and pest management. 

Recommended tree fruits for production in Arkansas home gardens are:

Apple Tree Fruit | Fruits & Nuts | Yard & Garden | Arkansas Extensionapples

Pear Tree Fruit | Fruits & Nuts | Yard & Garden | Arkansas Extensionpears

The stone fruits (peaches, nectarines, and plums) are more difficult to grow in the home garden due to their pest susceptibility.
