I would have thought that the large amount of nutrients that an apple tree for example, saps from the surrounding soil, that it would not be worth growing your own fruits, for self sufficiency purposes anyway. Of course it's nice to have them, but I would have thought that the added investment required to replenish the soil made it not worthwhile. I'm relatively new to gardening, so I may be wrong, but I've always wondered about this.
