Fruit trees

Asked April 9, 2014, 9:03 AM EDT

We are purchasing a new house in Alvaton and have room to put in fruit trees. Where can I find information or help with choosing varieties that will do well locally.

We have a listing of fruit varieties that do well in Kentucky for the home fruit grower at:
http://www.uky.edu/hort/sites/www.uky.edu.hort/files/documents/homefruitrec.pdf Some of these varieties ar designated as minimal pesticide varieties that have some level of disease resistance and make production easier for home fruit growers.
There is also a nursery source list for these varieties at:

Production guides for individual crops can be found on our Home Fruit site at:
