Orange
Lemon
Lime
Blueberry
Grape
Strawberry
Raspberry
Blackberry
Veggies:
Asparagus
Beets
Green Beans
Carrots
Corn
Broccoli
Cabbage
Cauliflower
Celery
Cucumber
Eggplant
Garlic
Leek
Lettuce
Onion
Bell Pepper
Banana Pepper
Potato
Pumpkin
Shallot
Sweet Potato
Tomato
Turnip
Herbs:
Thyme
Oregano
Basil
Parsley

I already know that the minimum and maximum for apples from seed is 30 and 100 ft.

The rest of them I am growing from seeds as well so I would like to know the minimum and maximum spacing of them.

RE: Minimum and maximum distance between plants and rows of them

You are pretending to grow these? Could you explain that please before any of us spend a great deal of time trying to answer your very complex question?

All of the fruits you list and many of the vegetables are grown from transplants or cuttings, not seeds, and several of them are 1-5 years old before being planted out.

For example:

the minimum and maximum for apples from seed is 30 and 100 ft.

That is not true. That may be the spacing for planting apple trees, not apple seeds.

PS: we would also need to know your location or at least your garden zone

Spacing depends a lot more on HOW you grow rather then WHAT you grow. For example, a farmer planting 100 acres in rows he can harvest via tractor is going to use a much different spacing then a home gardener using raised beds and the square foot method.

The other big variable is cultivar/type. You have "tomato" on the list, but the spacing for a determinate tomato is going to far different then for an indeterminate one. Also "lettuce" is it a leaf lettuce or a romaine? The spacing requirements are much different here too.

Like Dave said, what do you mean by pretend? A little more detail would be exponentially helpful.
