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 Sizes: There is variability in the tree sizes, but they are generally a ¾” caliper minimum with light to moderate branching (feathering). Height is usually at least 5′, but often over 7′.

Apple Tree Pricing

The apple trees are $33 for bare root and $46 potted. Please note that apple trees require another variety for a pollinator. The trees listed here will work for each other unless noted.

Apple Tree Sizes

Apple Tree Rootstocks
Dwarf: B9, G11, G41 – 8-12′ maturity, typically produces in 1-2 years.
Semi-Dwarf: – 12-18′ maturity typically produces in 2-4 years
Standard: – 30′ maturity typically produces in 6-9 years.
Bareroot or potted: Trees are dug in the fall and stored in cold storage for the winter. They are either sold bareroot in a dormant state or they are potted. I HIGHLY recommend planting bareroot whenever possible!!

Simply a superb fresh eating apple also good for cider, cooking and baking. Vinous, berry-like flavor. Dark red, medium-sized crunchy fruit. Moderate disease resistance. This is a 1926 introduction that lost popularity as a commercial apple with the development of apples that store and ship well.
