Apple Trees for sale
We are again offering a wide variety of apple trees for sale. All apple trees will be available for delivery as bare root stock in spring 2018. All shippable fruit trees will average between 3-4’ tall, not including the root, unless otherwise specified.
Please Note: Apple, Cherry, Plum, Pear and Apricot trees often require 2 trees for proper pollination. Trees that are self-fertile will be noted but, are generally more productive with another pollinator.
Now for a little information on zoning & rootstock:
It is important to note that many growers differ in the zoning of various fruit trees. Zones listed by us are based on our experience with trees in our orchard as well as the declared zoning by others. Our nursery is in a micro climate ZONE 3 giving us a good opportunity to evaluate hardiness. Rootstock also plays a role in hardiness and we prefer staying with the recommendations of Northern growers and the University of Minnesota, who is responsible for the development of so many wonderful fruit varieties. If our zoning differs from other suppliers it’s because we believe it will work in the stated area. And we guarantee the success of plants in the zones for which we have stated they will grow.
There are many different rootstocks used for the grafting of apple trees trees. The primary purpose of rootstocks is to control the size of the tree and to stimulate fruiting more rapidly. The subject of rootstocks for various fruit trees is generally too technical and truthfully not significant for the general consumer. To simplify the issue, Dwarf trees grow to a height of 8-12’, Semi-Dwarf, 12-18’ and Standards 18-30”. Additionally, the fruiting period for Dwarf trees is 1-3 yrs., Semi-Dwarf 3-5 yrs., Grafted Standards 5-7 yrs. and Standard trees grown from seed may take 10 to 20 years to produce.
Again, for your information: A true Standard Apple tree is one grown from seed and may take from 10 to 20 years before it produces an apple. Ask us why trees put on special rootstocks are superior!
