California Food Forests?

Hi all- I'm interested in putting a food forest in a little patch of land in back of my house in San Francisco, and am wondering what plants people would recommend I plant. The canopy layer is what I'm struggling with most, and I'd love, if it's possible, to plant as many as possible. =)

I appreciate any help anyone can give!

Thanks very much,

"little patch" probably means dwarf fruit trees for your canopy, make sure you have polliinators for them if they aren't self pollinating, two of each can take up quite a bit of room
Don't destroy the earth! That's where I keep all my stuff! Including this tiny ad:
