Small Fruit Trees
When I was younger doing door to door sales for some fund raiser, I remember stepping into someone's house and the had a small (4-5' tall) orange tree. Are there miniature varieties of different fruit types? I just happened to think of this out of the blue.

Yes, you're right, there is such a thing as a small fruit tree - usually called "miniature" or "dwarf" fruit trees. They've become more common in the last twenty years and more readily available. You can now grow miniature apple, apricot, cherry, nectarine, peach and even almond trees. Mother Earth News has a nice article about them as well as a list of mail-order sources for these trees.

I went cherry picking with my family earlier this year to a grove of dwarf cherry trees and it was great - easy to reach the fruit (even for my kids) and they were absolutely delicious! There was no loss in flavor at all.

Dwarf Fruit Trees
Dwarf Fruit Trees are fantastic way to go to small yet experience large.

The term dwarf, in the fruit tree category, applies to fruiting trees that typically do not exceed 6 feet in height and spread. The term dwarf fruit tree doesn’t signify any change in fruit size as virtually all dwarf fruit trees produce normal-size fruit, with most yielding about a fifth as much harvest as a common fruit tree with better flavor and color than the common tree just as Ispichkin says in the follow up post before this one.

these are a WOW!

as detailed on my blog, The Dwarf Fruit Trees Blog, I recommend the Dwarf Meyer Lemon Tree as the best starter or addition small tree.

I was at a greenhouse last week and they had various fruit trees.

Our fruit tree varieties provide backyard fruit growers with orchard quality fruit trees. With the proper care, our fruit trees will produce equally as well as those grown in professionally managed orchards. We offer fruit tree species that have been developed and improved over the years to offer both a quality appearance and delicious tasting fruits. Our fruit trees produce fruit for cooking, baking, or enjoyment fresh off of the tree. A large majority of people will attest to the superior taste of tree-ripened fruit than fruit purchased at a grocery store and by planting and growing one or more of our fruit trees, you can experience the same.

Fruit trees provide some of the most spectacular springtime flowering exhibitions in the plant world. Flowering apple and cherry trees will provide visual enjoyment for many years. Fruit tree species tend to live a long life and will provide nutritious fruit as well as beautiful eye candy for a long time. See our extensive selection below of our fruit trees.

Wow! I think they are also called "bonsai" fruit bearing trees. Do they require less maintenance?

Should i start figure skating?
Don't go into hockey just because you're "too old" for figure skating. If you like figure better, then go with that. You can still get to double jumps and compete at a mid-high level. Or if you don't really like spinning and jumping and precision, then you can compete on a great hockey team :) Since you've skated 11 years recreationally, I have a feeling that you'd be getting to single axel within a year, you wouldn't be afraid or unsure of your skating abilities.
