Fruit Trees

We offer tall, espalier, and dwarf varieties of fruit trees, including the new 4-in-1 and 3-in-1 varieties. It is recommended to prune fruit trees annually to keep them in the 7 to 8’ range for best care and easy accessibility to their fruits. Pruning should be restricted to January and February when the trees are dormant to minimize sprouting. Most fruit trees like full sun and well-drained soil. These beautiful trees provide beauty and structure to a garden, but also make eating, canning, cooking, and baking that much more fun!
