RE: fruit trees

My first thought is to visit several of your local orchards.

Where in NB.(New Brunswick)?did you purchase this land? The hardiness zones range from zone3 to zone5 so location will play a huge part in what selections will work for you.As Konrad suggested,starting with a visit to a local orchard...if there are any, would be the best way to go as they have already been there done that.
