I am planning on planting nine (9) fruit trees in my backyard, but I'm worried about what the water bill is going to look like if I do.
My plan to conserve would be to put in a drip system and time it to run at night... but I'm not sure how many gallons each tree is going to need per week. I know this is going to depend on each type of tree planted, but I'm not sure which varieties I want yet.
Do any of you know of any resources that outline that kind of information for fruit trees in Phoenix?
I was able to get a lot of good information about fruit trees in the different regions of Arizona from this website: http://ag.arizona.edu/pubs/garden/mg/fruit/index.html

Also, I was hoping for some nut trees. What nut trees grow in the Phoenix area?
