Fruits Selection, Planting, Care, Harvesting and Use

Currant

My currant bushes have been producing well for several years. The plants are getting large and outgrowing their location. How and when can I prune them to control their size but still have a large harvest?

Edible Ornamentals

I have a yard but want to grow a ornamental plant with edible fruits. Can you recommend any?

Fig

I live in zone 4 so I brought my dwarf fig tree indoors for the winter, and some of the leaves have turned brown and fallen off. Why did this happen? Also, will it bear figs indoors? Please give me advice on how to care for it.

Grape

I would like to grow concord grapes. Will they survive Wisconsin winters?

Grapefruit

My potted grapefruit tree is my pride and joy. I planted it from the seed of a grapefruit I ate over 10 years ago, and overwinter it in the house since I live in a cold (zone 4) area. Will it ever bear fruit?
