Free Images of Fruit Trees 

Note on large files:  Very large files may be bigger than your screen.  
Right click on any portion of the image showing and chose "save as". 

 

 

While all trees that flower produce some type of fruit, it is the trees that bear fruit that are consumed by humans that we usually think of when we use the term "fruit tree".  

 

The cultivation of fruits is called "pomolgy".  Scientific study groups fruits into "pome" fruits and "stone fruits".  Pome fruits, those that are accessory fruits made up of carpels surrounded by accessory tissue.  Examples are apples and pears.  Stone fruits are those that contain a center stone or pit surrounded by the fleshy meat we eat.  Some stone fruits include almonds, apricots, cherries, peaches, plums and nectarines.

In order for most fruit trees to pollinate, two trees must be planted.  If you want to grow and pollinate a pear tree, for example, you will need to plant a different type of pear tree.  An apple tree will not pollinate a pear tree.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Some nurseries sell "grafted" fruit trees.  Grafting is a technique in which a section of one tree stem with leaf buds is inserted into the stock of another tree.  This may be done a number of times and the result may be an apple tree that produces several types of apples on each branch.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The above apple tree has the following five varieties grafted onto one trunk:  Cortland, Lodi, Red Delicious, Red Macintosh, and Winesap.

The pear tree to the left has four varieties grafted:  Anjou, Bartlett, Comice, and Seckel.

Fruit trees need at least six hours of direct sunlight per day as well as well-drained soil.

Brightly coloured spring blossoms attract pollinators not only with their brilliant displays, but also with sweet smells signaling sweet, sugary nectar and protein-rich pollen.  Insects visiting the flower blooms inadvertently become covered with pollen.  When they fly to the next flower, they deposit the nectar from one flower to the next.  This is called cross-pollination.

The Wonder 
of Trees


 

 

 

"Even if I knew 
that tomorrow 
the world 
would go to pieces, 
I would still plant 
my apple tree."

~ Martin Luther ~

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

"I think that I 
shall never see
A poem as lovely
as a tree.

A tree whose hungry 
mouth is pressed,
Against the earth's 
sweet flowing breast;

A tree that looks 
at God all day
And lifts her leafy 
arms to pray;

A tree that may 
in Summer wear
A nest of robins
 in her hair;

Upon whose bosom 
snow has lain;
Who intimately 
lives with rain.

Poems are made 
by fools like me,
but only God 
can make a tree."

~ Joyce Kilmer ~
"Trees" 1914

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

"The best time
to plant a tree
was 20 years ago.
The next best
time is now."

~ Chinese Proverb ~
