For patios, I would suggest dwarf trees. If a supplier doesn't know what a
tree is, shop elsewhere. Check if the fruit tree is self fertile, or not. If
not, you will
need two trees of similar cultivars that can act is pollinators. Some fruits
fertile, so they don't need a companion tree for pollination. Put them in the
pots you can physically handle. Pots tend to dry out in hot weather, so keep
watered. If in a climate with very cold winters, either move them inside or try
insulate the pots. Fill the pots with a mix of compost and soil and assure that
is good drainage. These are just some general ideas. I suggest you study up on
fruit trees for more details.
