Long time lurker first time poster! I've been contemplating next year a fruit tree purchase to add to my back yard garden. I'd prefer to find varieties of fruit that is more disease resistant and that can handle high humidity. I live in Zone 7 (Long Island, NY) on a 0.25 acre of land so space is tight but it is currently completely open.
I'm open to suggestions outside of apples, peaches etc. though they would be lovely if a particular variety was known to be successful here. Thank you for taking your time to share any thoughts you have. I thought about asking this after all my friends who have apple and peach trees received a terrible harvest due to the high humidity and what they assume is molds/rots.
