I'm working on a design for a woman who likes to prune trees/shrubs kind of japanese style, so I've been trying to think of plants that are edible-or-permacultural, and that Like that sort of thing done to them....

It's not the usual thing we look for in permaculture plants, but hey, any ideas?

Right now she's got her rosemary pruned into a little tree...that kind of thing...

That might be a tough one, as many fruiting plants fruit on first or second-year growth.

Maybe she could do fruit espalier and leave the others alone?

Apple arbor.

I once saw a place where a fella planted two apple trees about six fee apart.  As the trees got to a certain height, he encouraged them to make an arbor shape.  As time passed, the arbor looked better and better.
