Dwarf Fruit Trees

What are Dwarf Fruit Trees

All of the Fruit Trees in this collection grow to 15 feet tall or less. Dwarf Fruit trees are excellent choices for small yards or gardens and many grow well in containers and even indoors. If you are looking for a fruit tree, but your space is limited, a dwarf fruit tree may be just what you are looking for. 

When to Plant Dwarf Fruit Trees

Plant Dwarf Fruit Trees in spring and fall for best results in most areas. However if you have mild summers or winters planting at those times is fine for most trees as well. Be sure to provide plenty of water when planting in summer and add a nice thick layer of mulch when winter planting.

Can You Grow Dwarf Fruit Trees in Pots?

Small fruit trees are perfect for containers. We recommend growing Figs, Meyer Lemons, Key Limes, and Arabica Coffee in pots. Make sure your container drains well. Water your plants when they start to dry out. Dwarf fruit plants grown in pots need fertilized more often than those planted in the ground. Some fruit trees can be grown indoors year-round, but you are likely to get the best yield from plants that are grown outside and then moved indoors or to a protected spot during winter. Most fruit trees stay smaller in containers versus planting them in the ground. Read more on Growing Fig Trees in Containers and Citrus Trees in Pots

Can Dwarf Fruit Trees be Grown Indoors?

Dwarf fruit trees like Meyer Lemon, Key Lime, Fig, and Coffee plants are great for growing indoors if you have a bright enough spot. Dwarf Citrus Trees love humidity so mist them daily or use a humidifier. Proper care is crucial for getting fruit trees to produce fruit indoors so be sure to do your research before choosing the dwarf fruit tree for you. 

How to Plant Dwarf Fruit Trees

Start by digging a hole about twice the width of the root ball and not quite as deep. Place your Dwarf Fruit Tree evenly in the hole. The top of the root ball should be slightly higher than the existing soil line. Backfill with the soil you remove.. Water deeply until the ground is fully saturated. Apply 1 to 2 inches of mulch in a mound around your plant to reduce watering needs and competing weeds.
