Orchard plants

Orchard plants are mainly fruit trees and shrubs and perennials grown for their edible fruit. In contrast to field and vegetable crops, the number of orchard species grown on a large scale is not large and only a few species are of economic importance. Among the most popular crops are apple, peach, apricot, plum, sweet cherry, sour cherry, raspberry, currant, gooseberry, grape, strawberry or blueberry.
