In order to be pollinators, both varieties will have to bloom at the same time, advises Ellen Nibali, horticulture consultant for the University of Maryland.
When putting a new fruit tree into the ground, Mr. Jeffers recommends adding a root stimulator, available in different brands, to the planting hole.
"The main thing to realize is," says Ms. Nibali, "if it looks great in the catalog, it's going to take a little work."
Ms. Nibali advises, "Things that grow really well are the small fruits if you want to get away from spraying.If you want to grow peaches you will have to spray for brown rot - they all get it."
She adds that sour cherries are less disease prone than sweet cherries; semi or dwarf varieties of fruit trees are easier to manage for pruning and picking.For pears she recommends getting a variety that's disease resistant.
Ms. Nibali advises that apples usually have to be sprayed, so when shopping for a tree try to find a variety that is bred to be disease resistant.
If you can figure out which disease or pest is annoying your tree, many times you can spray for just a problem or two, which saves time and money.
"You're also not killing beneficial insects you want to keep and spraying toxic stuff you don't need," says Ms. Nibali.
In a short list of recommendations, Ms. Nibali says Asian pears are a better choice than domestic; better than a sweet cheery would be a sour cherry, such as mont morency, which seems to sweeten the longer it's on the tree.
"It's easier if you just put it someplace where it's happy and not have to deal with it," says Ms. Nibali.
