Orlah and Kilayim outside of Israel

We are looking at planting some new trees in our backyard and I found some fruit trees that I am interested in.

There are some trees that are grafted with multiple varieties of the same fruit (e.g fuji, gravenstein, red delicious, etc) so all are apples and similarly there are some with a variety of plums.

Additionally, I also found a tree, in a different nursery, that is called “the fruit salad”, as it is grafted with multiple types of fruit (e.g. 1 tree with a branch for each fruit; peach, nectarine, plum, and apricot).

Can you please clarify any halakhic issues
