This spacing is a generic (one set fits all) recommendation.
If you soil is relatively (or better) fertile, I'd go at least 8'
between trees. If it is relatively poor (compacted clays with little top
soil, for example) I'd space them at 5 to 5.5' between trees.
Also very low vigor (and precocious) varieties should be taken into
Would you want to post the varieties?
