    I would say the fruit bearing information above is on the optimistic side. I have seen peaches produce fairly quickly, though never seen them grow anywhere near 15 feet per year, maybe 5 at the most. I have had pear and apple trees that I bought in the 2 to 4 foot height range that after 5 years still aren’t producing. I think the soil/light/pollination conditions make a big difference.
