Low-maintenance fruit trees: the most resistant

Given the large number of species of fruit trees, it is often difficult to choose one or the other based only on the type of fruit, the necessary space, the estimated growth time and other characteristics. Therefore, many people take into account the resistance of the tree and worry about investigating to find fruit trees of little maintenance that are really suitable to withstand droughts or that are able to grow with little water.

 

Low-maintenance fruit trees

If you have a lot of land and little time to maintain the plants, you will like the list of fruit trees of little maintenance and resistant to the lack of water that we leave you below:

Cherry tree

This fruit tree is one of the most resistant to low temperatures but you must be careful with spring frosts that it does not tolerate too well.

Apple tree

These trees are characterized by being a little neutral to soil conditions. The level of acidity or fertility is indifferent but yes, they need a soil with good drainage.

On the other hand, they do not tolerate wind or late spring frosts well but are very resistant to droughts and winter frosts.

Pear tree

This tree is typical of temperate climates with some humidity but is tremendously resistant, both to cold and heat. It is one of the most cultivated low-maintenance fruit trees in the world.

Peach tree

The only requirement for this fruit tree is light. It is impossible to see a peach grow and develop in a place where there is not enough light to give it the energy it needs.

It does not tolerate excessive heat well but, in general, it is a tree very resistant to lack of water.

Medlar

This tree resists the cold very well even growing in temperatures below 10ºC.

Other species of fruit trees classified as resistant to extreme storms are plumapricot tree, almond tree or kiwi.
