Tree Fruits

Many gardeners are interested in fruit trees, but are often unaware of which species will do well in Illinois and also the amount of work involved in growing tree fruit. Be sure to do your homework in planning a tree fruit planting, as not all tree fruits will do well in Illinois.

  • Introduction
  • Apples
  • Apricots
  • Cherries
  • Nectarines
  • Peaches
  • Pears
  • Plums

Small Fruits

Small fruits are named from the fact that edible fruit is produced on a small perennial plant. Strawberries, brambles (raspberries & blackberries), blueberries, grapes, currants, and gooseberries are all examples of small fruit crops.

  • Introduction
  • Blackberries
  • Blueberries
