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 Trees

Our apple trees are sold primarily bareroot. We occasionally have some potted trees at the store depending on availability. Apple trees should have two different varieties for pollination. This can include crabapples.

NOTE: Check the Crabapple page for both edible and flowering crabs!

Apple Tree Sizes

Apple Tree Rootstocks
Dwarf: B9 – 8-10′ maturity, typically produces in 2-3 years*. NOT appropriate for wildlife plots. These do also require staking.
Semi-Dwarf: M7 – 12-18′ maturity typically produces in 3-4 years*.
Standard: Antonovka – 30′ maturity typically produces in 6-9 years*.

*Time to bear are ESTIMATES. Weather, moisture, soil fertility/microbial population, etc. are just a few factors.

 

Apple Tree Sizes: There is variability in the tree sizes, but semi-dwarf and standard are generally a ¾” caliper minimum with light to moderate branching (feathering). Height is usually at least 5′, but often over 7′. Dwarf trees are generally smaller by nature. Several varieties are available only as “whips”. These trees are shorter and do not have branching. These varieties are noted in the descriptions.

Closed for the 2022 nursery season. SEe you this fall for apple season!
