Opinions please from all you experts with far more experience in growing 
fruit than I.

Is it better to plant fruit trees in late summer or early fall than in 
spring?  If so, why?  There are plenty of bargains available in late summer, 
from catalogs and at garden centers.  I'm tempted to take advantage of the 
cheaper prices, especially if there are advantages.  With ornamental trees 
and shrubs, you gain a season's growth with fall planting, or so says the 
conventional wisdom.
