In a general sense there are two types of fruiting trees- spur bearing such as most apples and pear trees, or tip bearing trees. Spur bearing trees are ideal for espalier as you won’t prune off the new fruiting buds when trying to maintain a cordon or espalier shape. Although it’s not impossible to espalier tip bearing tree such as apricots, plums, cherries, peaches and nectarines you will be restricted mainly to the fan espalier shape.
