Nothing beats the flavor of a homegrown apple or peach, but growing your own fruit comes with a myriad of challenges. If you are just getting started by planting a couple of fruit trees or some small fruit, do it right by planning your fruit garden
and planting the K-State recommended varieties
. As your fruit trees grow, you will want to prune
them to optimize the fruiting potential. When your fruit trees get ready to bear, refer to the Fruit Pest Control Guide
to protect your fruit from insects and diseases.
