Everything about fruiting bonsai trees

Posted by juliabennet on July 22nd, 2011

Growing bonsai trees indoor is an exquisite art and is meant chiefly for people who have hobbies for gardening and landscaping. Fruiting bonsai trees are extremely beautiful to look at what with the small trees bearing miniature ripe fruits in their petite structure. Bonsai fruit trees mostly include deciduous and conifers. Bonsai fruit trees make delicious and interesting additions to your vegetative collection. This variety is different from the dwarf ones, carefully crafted and miniature sized, just like the standard trees. Cherry, fig, blueberry, orange and several other fruiting trees make great choices for this form of art.

However, being miniature models of full grown trees, you need to choose a particular fruiting bonsai that is well suited to the climate you live in. A simple instance states that orange and lemon bonsai trees will grow better in the dry, sunny weather of California rather than in the moist, cloudy weather conditions like England. Contrarily, Calamondin bonsai fruit trees thrive well in almost every climatic condition ranging from sunny to humid conditions. However, if you have such a bonsai, then make sure that you bring them back home before it starts freezing.

Flowers and fruits start appearing over the course of one year or so, around the same time of the year. Citrus fruiting bonsai trees prefer sunny and bright locations and are commonly grown as they are easy to take care of. Chinese bonsai fruit trees are seen to do well in South and mid-Western parts due to the downpour during the fall and spring and the long, extended winter. The Surinam Cherry bonsai bears delicious fruits that are edible. Belonging to the eatable variety of fruiting, it is an evergreen, subtropical tree that has dark green leaves that form in pairs and has an exfoliating bark exhibiting a striking red tinge. This bonsai is a famous landscape tree in the south of North America and thrives very well indoor.

Barbados Cherry is another from the edible variety which is a native to Trinidad, Curacao and St. Croix. With typically weeping branches and twigs, the plant experiences a weeping growth habit only when the branches are let to elongate. This tree bears several fruits together in a cyme in rose-pink tinge. The fruits of this fruiting bonsai are red, round, edible, extremely juicy and have a high content of ascorbic acid. However, all the fruit bearing bonsai fruit trees do not yield edible fruits.

These trees, irrespective of their types should be kept in suitable weather conditions. They require watering at least once a day with 4 to 6 hours of sun exposure. Though more bonsai fruit trees are grown indoors in balconies or living rooms to beautify the rooms, they require similar natural elements like their bigger counterparts. Fruiting bonsai trees should be planted on ideal soil types piled with soil mixes for a better growth.
