How close can you plant fruit trees?

I have 3 citrus, a mango, an avocado and a pear to plant. I live on a large block and already have a lemon, plum, peach and apple. The area is about 4m x 4m.

Answer: The standard spacing for citrus and stone fruit is around 7.3 m between the rows and 5.5 m between the trees in the rows. Similar spacing for the mango and avo but maybe about 8.5 between the trees if you are in a tropical climate where they may grow bigger. I don’t think you will be able to fit all these trees into 4 × 4m.
