Quince will almost definitely be possible, but I'm no expert when it

comes
to
peaches. Is the wall a garden wall, or the wall of a house (presumably

yours).
The only reason I ask is that heat from a wall that is part of a house

may
give added protection as heat lost through the wall from a house will

almost
definitely give more protection.


It's a garage wall. It's some 50' - 60' from the house, and the garage
isn't used for a car, so there's no heat from that source.

You don't say whether you want to eat the fruit, but I guess that's the

idea,
or you wouldn't specifically want a fruit tree. Have you considered

Figs?
They taste wonderful fresh off the tree, and nothing like the dried.


Yes, we do want to eat the fruit. We hadn't really considered a Fig, but
it's certainly an idea ...


If you want to eat the fruit, I would forget about quince, it's one of the
most bitter fruits there is, you can really only use it cooked with a lot of
sugar.
