    "Yet" or "Although"

    Q: Is "Yet" possible instead of "Although" in the following passage?
    If so, why?
    If not, why?


    Now people who have little space can grow fruit trees appropriate to the climate. In hot dry climates, people can have small orange, lemon, and grapefruit trees. In colder climates, people can have dwarf apple trees. _Although_ dwarf trees require less space and water than regular trees, they are prolific bearers of fruit.


    Thank you very much!

    No. Yet doesn't mean the same thing as although.

    You can't substitute although for yet, unless you'd rewrite the sentence:

    Dwarf trees are prolific bearers of fruit, yet require less space and water than regular trees.

    (ORYGINAL) Although_ dwarf trees require less space and water than regular trees, they are prolific bearers of fruit.
