Hi Kelsey I do not know too much about fruit trees but what little I have learnt I am happy to share,
If your after lower maintenance trees I would select apples or pears, plums or cherrys,( fig trees grow like weeds) and a couple fijoas together pollinate well etc if it is possible look into stone fruit lastly as they are quite prone to the horrid curly leaf which can be a real issue, if i am not mistaken fruit trees are surface feeders so thrive with good mulch compost around base which keeps other weed competition down also organic matter retains moisture like a sponge which can reduce how often you need to be watering (: anyway there's my 2 cents(: and remember the three D's and C A C when pruning also 1st year growth doesn't bare fruit
