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

*Bareroot apple trees are $38 and include a tree guard and myco root dip.
**Potted apple trees are $59 and may be available in-store on a very limited basis. Please note that our potted trees are the same trees as our bareroot trees and we highly recommend you plant bareroot.
