Popular varieties of ultra dwarf fruit trees include fuji apple, patten pear, and bing cherry. Common varieties of standard dwarf fruit trees include northern lights apples and golden spice pears. And some semi-dwarf fruit trees to grow include Honeycrisp apple, sweet cherry, and Muir peach.
Important note: If you are worried that dwarf trees are the result of genetic modification or genetic engineering, you’ll be happy to know that is not the case. Dwarf fruit trees are the product of centuries of horticultural tradition, where sections of fruit trees with favorable characteristics have been carefully budded or grafted on to compatible rootstock.
