EUGENE, Ore -- You don't have to have an orchard to enjoy farm fresh fruits, instead consider space saving fruit trees.
Caleb Johnson, owner of Johnson Brothers Garden Market, says think columnar, horizontal, and grafted.
"First up, the espalier trees which grow horizontally. You can put them along a fence or in a corner. So, you don't need a big fruit tree taking up a bunch of space. You can grow fruit in a very narrow space," Johnson said.
Dwarf trees are another option. Johnson says these smaller trees may only grow to be 8 feet tall as opposed to 15 feet.
Grafted multi variety trees also make great space savers.
"We do have some fruit trees out there where you can get multiple fruits in one -- you can get a plum, apricot and apple all on the same tree," added Johnson.
Some trees like columnar apples can be planted in a container. Johnson say they grow vertical and not very far out.
Johnson Brothers Garden Market is located at 91444 Coburg Road in Eugene.
