We are again offering a wide variety of apple trees for sale. All apple trees will be available for delivery or pick up as bare root stock in spring 2024.

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 microclimate 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. 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.


It should be noted that the pricing below are for apple trees on Semi Dwarf rootstock only!
Dwarf and Standard trees are available on several varieties but supplies are extremely limited.  Should you desire these please call for availability.

*** Also note that we CANNOT ship XL and XXL trees to all states without incurring additional charges, some of which may be considerable.  Regular, Big and some Xl can be shipped to Illinois, Iowa, Minnesota, North and South Dakota and Wisconsin ONLY at no extra charge ***

Remember fruit trees need 2 or more that bloom around the same time to cross pollinate
(Early season will pollinate a mid-season bloomer, mid-season will pollinate an early or late season.
(You may also use 2 of the same blooming time to cross pollinate but a different variety.)
