Suitable Fruit Trees for Public Streets

    5 responses

Leona starts with ...
Do you have overhead powerlines as this could limit your options as you would have to choose something that wont grow too tall. It also depends if you are after more of a shrub type tree (which you could use as a hedge) or more of a standard shape (maybe you could use it as a shade tree to park under etc).Off the top of my head, I would say guavas especially feijoas as most people wouldnt recognise them as fruit anyway. Also, lilly pillys are great or maybe a loquat, persimmon (one that doesnt need a pollinator) or maybe even a deciduous tree such as a peach. White Shahtoots are good too as they wont stain the pavement.

I would like to get anyone's suggestion on which fruit trees are suitable to grow alongside your local streets.

A few helpful characteristics would be:

1. Not easy to pick by people walking by.
2. Drought tolerant and able to deal with smog.
3. Not harmful to the public eg a macadamia nut on the footpath might make somebody fall.

I would appreciate your suggestions and perhaps the reason you think your's would be a good choice.

Yes, but as you can see from the above first reply's date of September 2007, and this opening post's web link's number is just #1237, I was the first one to pose this great question.
I edited this original opening post today, so because of an inadequate feature of this website, the original opening post's date is deleted.

There are more questions than answers in this thread. There will be different species suited to different climates and the amount of space.
Are rarer species being considered, how cryptic should fruit be, are fruit hoped to be used just be the adjacent resident, is how ornamental the tree is an issue?

Yeah, I don't know how to control the locations showing up on this website.
There seems to be many minor problems with this website.
