I have one it hasnt fruited yet but seems to be pretty vigerous for its size. Its currently about 2ft tall. I have a fruit container garden going on right now. Got aprox. +40 fruit trees and vines in pots of various sizes. What zone do you live in? If your in a zone 8-9 I could recommend some good fruit plants to grow. If you live in a zone below 8 I would recommend planting mainly apples and berries. A good container apple would be anything with a BUD 9 rootstock. You will get high yield for the amount of space taken up by the apple tree. Just take a look at this guys mini apple orchard in a small chicago backyard http://www.midfex.org/yale/intro.html . I would also recommend not buying from starkbros I have heard mixed things from them. Here are some excellent places to buy fruit trees from; http://baylaurelnursery.com/ , http://www.burntridgenursery.com/ , http://ediblelandscaping.com/ , http://www.rollingrivernursery.com/ , http://www.raintreenursery.com/

I have a Miniature peach tree planted in the back yard. Its been in the ground for 2 years, and is between 3 - 4 feet tall.

I highly recommend Miniature trees for anyone limited on space, which is just about every urban dweller.
