I have planted 4 patio fruit trees in large pots. Having read your details, I now realize I should have increased pot size annually. Will I lose my fruit trees, as I cannot undo all the hard work by friends too?
You don't necessarily need to change the pots each year, just when they get root bound. If they are in very large pots, then you may have many years before they get root bound. Plus, with them being dwarf trees, they may never reach the size that would fill the pot, so may never need to be repotted.
Is it possible to use some kind of protective cover as fruit appears to discourage pests, etc.? Thank you.
This is helpful for some kinds of pests, but not all. Because of this, it is best to put the trees on a spray schedule in the spring using organic or chemical pesticides.
I mean what will happen if dwarf fruit tree maintain in vase in our home without a cool temperature in winter? i know most tree fruit need a deciduous, so if the dwarf fruit tree keeps in home without a deciduous, what happen to them ?
I'm very uncertain of what, exactly, is being asked here.
A fruit tree will not be able to be kept in a vase at all. They will need a container with soil, and likely extra lighting indoors.
Depending on the type of tree, many require a winter dormancy. This will not happen indoors, and can kill the tree.

Even the dwarf trees can grow 8 to 10 feet tall and wide so you only have room for one. There is no easy way to manage fruit trees, they need good soil preparation, planting technique, ongoing soil and water management, and pest/disease control.
I think it would be very difficult to monitor the tree's condition and needs without a partner or hired helper who is able to see all the factors.

I'm interested in container gardening and I live in zone 9.
It depends on the fruit. Most apples won't do well in your area, but most citrus will. You will have to choose a tree that is suitable for your area.
Hi.. just subscribed to your site! New at gardening and want to plant dwarf fruit trees on my large deck. I live on the coast but in a "banana belt" and is considerably warmer than other areas. I have full sun for 6++ hours/day. I know about citrus but would like to plant peach/pear/apple but not sure if I can and what variety. Thank you so much Danielle
