What are the benefits having a fruit tree in your backyard?

I remember when I was young while growing up my mom had so many fruit trees from persimmon, apple, pear, calamansi, banana and so many more just growing in our backyard. By the time it was in season to eat them we had a lot of fruits to eat from our own home as each time we couldn't eat all of them my mom would give them away to her family friends free of charge. The benefit of having a fruit tree in your home you get to enjoy the fruits and make it into baked goods such as lemon bar, cakes and pies. You can also make it into a fresh juice by using a juicier. I use to dehydrate our fruits to make it into dried fruits and it became our snack at home. Now you have more time to spend time in your own home and you have room to grow fruit trees in your home by the time your fruits have grown out in your backyard you have your own fruits coming from your own garden.

So often when we are younger and still growing up we don't want to learn how to cook or we find cooking is not our thing but when your parents are no longer living next to you later you will regret that you should of have learned the wa
