Apple trees are probally the easiest to look after. Whatever tree you decide on,do some research on its type of prefered soil and suplments that you can give it to grow healthy and the tree will grow faster and give fruit sooner(and more of it)...if you just plant it without doing these two steps,it will grow slower and produce less fruit...and the apples or whatever fruit it may be,will be smaller and not taste as good...I would also suggest to pick a tree that grows naturaly in the wild in your climatic zone....A friend of mine plated a japanese maple,very nice looking tree...he babyed it,proper soil/food did well for about five years...then we had a brutal winter(or normal one if you warming) it didnt like the bitter month of -20c and deep frost in the ground(like it used to be years ago) it didnt survive..completly dead..He was not happy loosin it ...ive seen this with other non-native trees as well.Iam not saying you will have problems with all non-native trees...but pick one that comes from a simaler climate zone.

Apple trees should be one of the most common. Free apples every season, easy care, fun to pick (but still be careful!)

Berry trees - Nan King, Evans Cherry, saskatoon, choke cherry are good starts - they bear fruit in the first year.

hi Spidy Brian & Grace are right apple trees are the easiest to take care of ,,, i have fruit trees too in my backyard and i have plums, pears, apples have grown already, cherry tree died cause of storm, fig trees, peaches all u can imagine is in my backyard ... some trees are still young so they don't produce yet but the fig trees have grown like 3 times already to maximum size with huge figs on them ... i put MIracle Gro for my fruit trees and sometimes it helps to produce fruit faster but it all depends how old the tree is too ... i have a lemon tree but it only produced 1 green lemon hehehehehe ,,,,
