Chicago's Johnny Appleseed - Gene Yale

So you live in the city… that shouldn’t stop you from having an orchard!

And you tell me you have a standard city lot (about 2500 square feet) and room for just a couple of fruit trees? Think again!

Gene Yale, living in a Chicago suburb, has 170+ apple trees in his yard. And six high-bush blueberries! By growing tiny little trees – grafted and managed like Bonsai – Gene has a yard full of 3-foot apple treas that bear full size fruit.
