Hi there,
Make certain you find trees on dwarf stock, that will keep them small. 
Rather than an apple, consider a type of crab- some are quite tasty and are 
less prone to disease. You might be able to get pears, there is a variety 
developed in the Dakotas that stays small, and don't forget the hardy 
cherries (Northstar, etc). Growing the bushing fruit might be fun, also. And 
don't forget about the possibility of training the trees a la espalier (I 
know that isn't spelled correctly).Careful pruning will keep everything 
fairly dwarfed.
Good growing,
Lisa in Mpls
