I'm a big fan of the TN Ag Extension website. It is full of great info and regionalized.

I planted a peach tree last year in my yard and I've been amazed at how many peaches are growing on it.

Default Apple trees and cedar rust

I planted a couple of apple trees a while back, and got a really bad case of cedar rust on them last year. Be careful what kind of trees you pick, as some are significantly susceptible to the rust, while a few others are resistant, and even fewer are immune. I'm going to replace the rust prone ones with the immune ones, as I don't want to have to use chemicals just to have some apples.

that all realy depends on what kind of fruit your looking for, tn is pretty good for growing all but the realy tender trees (is cirtus and tropicals)

look into species resistant to rust, but you also want to get verieties you LIKE, if you hate pears theres no pont in planting a pear.

you can also get "4 in 1" trees, multiple fruits on 1 tree (you can get mulitple types of apple grafted onto 1 root stock, same goes for other species) and they are typically good for polinating eachother too.
theese are great if your limited on space and not sure if you want multiple types for polination.
