How to see/ understand the difference between male and female fruit trees?
How to see/understand the difference between male and female fruit trees? Is there a list of trees that need both to pollinate? How do I see the difference in real life? I am looking forward to hearing from you,

Not all fruit tree have male and female. Most have perfect flowers, which means the male and female parts are contained in one flower.
On the fruit plants that have male and female, typically you can find the immature fruit either inside the flower or right below the flower on the female. It will look like a tiny, green version of the mature fruit, typically.
