You can't really go wrong with fish, blood and bone. The feeding roots of fruit trees are towards the end of the roots which tend to spread out about as far as the branches do, so sprinkle the FB&B around that area, avoiding putting any very near the base of the trunk. For best results, water it in and mulch the area with compost or bark chippings etc. afterwards. Don't grow grass or other plants under the canopy if you can help it as they will compete with the tree and reduce the crop.
