Which fruit trees (or vines) produce the most crop for the least space?

I'm going to be growing oranges, few different varieties

And Papia and what else for a great quality green house for growing tropical semi tropical fruits?

    Maybe an idea of the size of the greenhouse would help people guide you.
    I'd rather be an Optimist and be proved wrong than a Pessimist and be proved right.

    We've got a grape vine in our greenhouse, it was left in the old greenhouse when we moved here. It was a huge greenhouse but falling down lol. We bought a new greenhouse, no where near as big as the old one but big enough. The grapevine seems to take over though and we have to cut it back a lot.

    Don't forget, with a grapevine, you don't need to keep it all in the greenhouse. Keep the roots in there, and the early growth will be protected. Let a stem or two run out of a (broken or removed) window, and it will grow rampant.

    Very effective, a Georgian favourite

    I think you will find it is the other way round, roots outside, saves watering, with growth in side for fruit protection & early ripening
