When it comes to the home orchard, some pre-planning is a must. Some fruit is easier than others and it is often hard to discern in the catalogs which apple variety, blueberry or persimmon will do well in Kentuckiana.
My No. 1 rule is the more information a catalog provides the better. Gathering as much information as possible is the key to success when it comes to fruit trees.
So where do you find the information? A good place to start is with local university research and recommendations.
