About Our Apple Trees

A note from Lisa…folks, remember that there are over 7500 varieties of apple trees in the world! Your standard store varieties are nice, but let me encourage you to help keep important genetic diversity alive and consider other varieties that may also suit your needs!

Apple Tree Pricing

The apple trees are $26 for bare root and $37 potted. Please note that apple trees require another variety for a pollinator. The trees listed here will generally work for each other because there is enough overlap in bloom time with northern hardy varieties. However, there are several varieties noted that will not work for each other.
