Bareroot Fruit Trees Arrive Mid to Late November
In stock fruit trees may fluctuate with the season so please call ahead for availability.
Plant two trees that bloom at the same time to achieve best pollination and fruit set.
Some varieties require three trees be planted in close proximity, varieties such as Bramley’s Seedling and Red Gravenstein are triploid apples, meaning they have an extra third set of chromosomes that make them incapable of pollinating without other apple trees and need at least two fertile varieties, and all three trees need to flower at the same time.
A Crabapple nearby that flowers during the same period will also work.
