Which flowering trees have persistent fruit?
« on: 20/06/2006 22:47:44 »
I have been trying to figure out what flowering trees have persistent fruit but have not had much luck in my research. I live in PA and am planning to plant a few flowering trees around my yard but, I don't want to deal with messy fruit in the yard. I was considering planing a Japanese Flowering Cherry, Pink Dogwood and a Kousa Dogwood but worry about all of the mess they could make. Any suggestions?

I will say that if it's a lone tree it will not produce fruit as it will have to be pollenated to do that.

The issue I see is looking to, introduce a tree to a place it is not from. I take it you are not in Japan. So if you do decide on a Japanese Cherry tree unless there is another one with in a decent distance, it will never produce any fruit at all.

Just to say, I do not think it's such a great idea tho, to use a non native tree in your garden.
