You'll see from this link that the RHS agrees with Bob that small trees rarely require staking. https://www.rhs.org.uk/advice/profile?PID=208
Unless the photo is deceiving, I'm a little concerned that there will not be a lot of room for the branches of the fruit trees, even if they're small ... the bed seems a little narrow to acommodate the width of a fruit tree's branches.
I would be training espalier or fan trees against that fence.
