    Semi/Dwarf Apples

    this has more to do with rootstock that the tree themselves...........dwarf rootstock gets yah smaller trees reguardless of variety

    kiwi

    what type? there are 4 different species in common cultivation.......

    Are you looking for plants whose flowers you can eat, or plants that have lots of flowers and also grow fruit?

    'Cause if you're looking for plants that produce fruit and also have flowers, you have a LOT to chose from! All fruits are by definition angiosperms (flowering plants).

    Maybe add Passiflora to your list. They have both spectacular tasting fruit and spectacular looking flowers. It's actually my third favorite fruit after mangosteens and chocolate persimmons.

    I just saw some passiflora vines at a grocery store today.

    You want pomegranite? Try sprouting some from seeds. Maybe check stores for fruit and sprout the seeds. I got 100% germination rate, but I forgot to water them... :'(

    You forgot Akebia quinata. I really like it and it does well for me here on an arbor. I have 6 or 7 plants that I grew from seed so that they will cross-pollinate. They root from ground layering too though.

    Rattler,

    Oh, thank you! Im nearly positive ive seen genetic dwarf apples in catalogs though (?).

    Brokken,

    Sorry my titles confusing. A few of the plants im looking i want to grow for their flowers, but most i want to grow for their fruit.

    Jeff,

    I actually have some seeds of P. edulis. I agree, they are delicious! Have you ever tried a ripe cherimoya? That is the best tasting fruit ive ever tasted!

    I might try that if i cant find any other plants...

    IndianaGardener,

    That plant looks really interesting! Ive heard they dont fruit well/consistantly under cultivation though...?

    with apples, the issue you run into is those bred to be genetic dwarfs, lil attention was paid to fruit quality.....the fruit quality on most all of the columular type apples sucks.........you farther ahead getting apples you want and either grafting them on to dwarf root stock OR just keep them trimmed.....if yah pay attention you can keep any apple variety at a small size through trimming.....

    It flowers reliably, but may skip a yr or two with fruiting. It does here at least. It may be different in various locations.







    You can eat the seeds with the fruit pulp, but don't chew them. If you break them open, they will cause nausea. The fruit is quite good though and very sweet.

    That's right. You could espalier one.
