A fruit tree is a tree which bears fruit that is consumed or used by humans and some animals — all trees that are flowering plants produce fruit, which are the ripened ovaries of flowers containing one or more seeds.

In horticultural usage, the term ‘fruit tree’ is limited to those that provide fruit for human food. Types of fruits are described and defined elsewhere, but would include “fruit” in a culinary sense, as well as some nut-bearing trees, such as walnuts.

The scientific study and the cultivation of fruits is called pomology, which divides fruits into groups based on plant morphology and anatomy. Some of those groups are: Pome fruits, which include apples and pears, and stone fruits, which include peaches/nectarines, almonds, apricots, plums and cherries.

The genus Sorbus includes many cultivated and wild, berry bearing trees, such as The Rowan or Mountain Ash but are listed separately.

The examples of fruit trees here are a non-scientific group of trees and bushes whose sole or main human use is fruit production.
